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.

I'm with Ed on this one (and also speaking from experience).

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
