Wavebuster bobbers

Recommended Posts

Guest

fisherman,

They are brand new this year for open water so I don't think many people have a had a chance to try them out this spring yet. All I can say is the ice version was great and if the open water version works only half that good, that will be the only bobber many of us will be fishing this year. grin.gif

You can get the bobbers here:

I have used them several times already this year. They work great! Cast great, easy to see, and as always, they can be trimmed just the way you want for the conditions. I should thank Rick for them, I must have got them at one of the Ice Fishing Events this Winter. I forgot I had them in my tackle box until I was in the boat in SD.

I recommend you give them a try if you haven't yet. They are basically a modified ice buster winter bobber that cast real well!ScottS

Just got mine in the mail the other day. Boy do they look pretty in the package! I haven't had them out yet, but will definitely try them on the opener.

Thanks for the Great comments! We just finished shooting a T.V. segment with Midwest Outdoors on the Wave Busters and were targeting Crappies. I was using a 1/32oz. black tube jig with a chartruse head and caught a few nice ones on Clearwater Lake. I left mine the original length and had the jig 1-1/2 foot below the bobber. I put a stop knot above AND below the bobber so it was pegged at 1-1/2 ft. This way when the Crappies and the small sunfish bit, the Wave buster would stand upright like a tattle tail trick and then I'd quickly set the hook and reel 'em in. My partner trimmed his down so that just the orange sleeve on top was showing and that was very sensitive to the bite. Another reason for the stop knot above and below was to save the bobber onto the line if we broke our jig off on a snag. That way we didn't have to pull up anchor and chase down a bobber. I can't wait for opener to use it with a 1/8 oz. glow jig for Walleyes. Have Fun, Bruce Mosher

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
    • Ok getting things back on track.  Next month will be my 14th year and I think I've only met one other member.  Met Frank (Surface Tension) several years back on Fish Lake near Duluth.  He was incredibly helpful and generous sharing his knowledge of the lake.  If I remember right my dad and I drove up and Frank called saying the forecast looked like rain for the entire day.  Well my dad and I were already on the way and were going to fish rain or shine so Frank and his son still geared up and met us for some fishing.  I don't remember exactly how the day broke down but I remember get really wet but also catching a lot of nice fish.  I've fished the lake a lot since but that was my best day by a long shot.
