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

    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days 
    • A gill getter jig(horizontal) and a "flipper" jig(vertical) are the first two to go on the line for sunfish.   Crappies are kinda my kryptonite, so i usually throw the box at them till something works. I am still a meat fisherman, plastics have been very productive at times however.
    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
