ultimate bobber setup

9 posts in this topic

What does everyone consider to be their favorite bobber fishing setup?

Right now I am using a 6'6" medium action but plan on buying a 7' ML. I have been using 8 lbs PLine floroclear all year long with good results too.

If you have room in your boat I would consider at least a rod 7' 6" ML to Med action. G. Loomis (HSR 9000).

Cabelas also carries some nice rods.

Price range???

If I had room for a 7'6" rod in my boat I would go with that too but I think it would be just too big. Right now I am debating between an avid and a premier.

Jason Mitchell's slip float rod would be my pick.

Jason Mitchell Elite Series #JMSS80SB

"This revolutionary eight foot telescoping rod was designed specifically for slip floats. This medium action graphite blank is tied using larger spinning guides so slip float knots aren’t as apt to slide. The rod blank is marked every foot with a white stripe so anglers can quickly set depth by using the rod as a ruler. The length and power of this rod is perfect for slip floats but also can be used as a great dead rod in the rod holder. This rod boasts a high modulus graphite blank with high quality guides and high grade cork handle."

"Kurt Shirado"

MSRP Price: $85.00

I like at least a 7' rod with a moderate action. No nead for big graphite counts or stiff tips.

Check out the Cabelas Fish eagle II's. You can pick up their 7'6" ML rod for around $79.00 or so.

I like to use braid on my bobber rig with a 3 foot mono leader. The no strech of the braid makes for better hooksets regardless of the rod used.

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
