How do you fish Lindy"s w/Bobber??

5 posts in this topic

I read in a previous post about walleye techniques, somebody said something about using bobbers w/ lindy rig, how do you set this up? Does it work well?

This is new to me.. I have not heard of it. .I have fished something semi similar for pike from shore? It was a sinker on the bottom to a snell and bait.. the bobber was used as a strike indicator.. but then again, you could just hold your line without the bobber and do the same thing... But this rig worked better because of the current of the river.

I believe the rig Deitz is referring to is called something like a paternoster rig, commonly used on the fens and lochs in Europe for zander, good for slight current as well. As to the original post, I have not heard of bobber fishing with a Lindy rig but there is the icebuster floating slip sinker that may be what is being referred to.

It works well if you have some snells tied up. What it does is it allows you to switch hooks really fast and get it back into the water. Your normal lindy rig set up with a swivel on top. So if you want to switch hooks open the swivel put the new line in there, close it and have at it again. Thats the way I usually fish with bobbers! Good luck.

I use it to fish current area from shore. It allows you to drift a lindy with out a boat. It works great. set so that the lindy sinker drags on the bottom. Use a light weight. I use it in channels alot.

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..
    • I'm in, in zone 13
    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.  
    • congrats to your dad Borch!

    • Nice work Borch for you and your dad. Congrats . I have been seeing a lot of strutters of the weekend . Those 20 gauges are awesome sure put a hurting on .
    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
