Ice-Buster Bobbers

5 posts in this topic

Well, I finally got round to trying these
bad boys. Where have they been all my life!!
They work slick.Granted, the design is some
what outside the norm of the Thills and Wasps
(kinda ugly even!!).But man do they perform.
I like the snap on/snap off feature,and even with a little panfish rig,they allow the setup to shoot down to the bottom to the
fish. No more jiggling the blasted line until it finally gets to the bobber stop/bead.
One suggested improvement, would be to have
the yellow foam part, available in some
hot neon colors. Also, did I hear you could
get a glowstick or whatnot to attach somehow
to it??

I highly suggest to others to try this product. I was skeptical at first,but
I now have several in my box!! They have
certainly sold me......... smile.gif

I just recently started using them too and I really like them. I agree with TUMBLEWEED as I would like to see them in a different color that may be easier to see in the hole.

Since we are giving out suggestions, how about a bigger slot for heavier line. I use them all the time now but have had to tweek them a little for heavier line. Just a suggestion. They are the best!!

If Bruce reads this, I have some great pictures for you if you are interested in them.ScottS

Tumbleweed,

Just cut a little nick, or use a pencil to make a hole in the top of the foam and stick a glow stick in it. Ta-da, lighted bobber!

    • Looking for a Wild win tonight, I don't think Kemper is going to get the start in this important game. I don't think anyone likes the five day layoff. Typical got to mess with something that works instead of just playing. Wild will come out of the break with a lot of games to play and little time off to rest anyone.
    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
