Bottom Bouncers

3 posts in this topic

I have never used a bottom bouncer, and I was speaking with a resort owner on a lake that I am going to fish, and he recommended using one. My question is what is the best type of situation to use one? the lake I am going to be fishing is a Mucky bowel type of lake. The depth does not go beyond 15 feet.
Any info will help.

Thanks ~TJ~

Hello,
Most of the time resort owners know the trick and are a good source of info. My only concern is using a bottom bouncer in such shallow water. The times I have used them were significantly deeper, 30+. That's my two cents. I'm sure you will get a different perspective on the use of a bottom bouncer from other people in the know. Multiple usage I'm sure! Good Luck Jim W

TCARLSON, I'm going to fish the exact type of lake in Polk Co.(Maple Lake). What works great for me is a Foam Walker. It's a Bottom Bounce, Lindy Rig type of unit thats a great Finesse rig. Pull a floater rig behind it and work it as slow as you want for best results. Check it out at www.icebusterbobbers.com and click onto the Foam Walker. Good Luck, Bruce M

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!

    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
