nuetral bouyance

Recommended Posts

It all depends on what you're talking about. Neutral bouyancy is very important while using a slip bobber as in the Ice Buster Bobbers when the fish are biting light. Trim it down to match your bait and jig weight and watch the bobber go down undetected. In Crank Baits I like the neutral bouyancy so I can stop my retrieve and let a fish look at the bait and then they will smack it. Some instances it just doesn't matter. Bruce Mosher

Nuetral bouyancy can be important in several aspects of fishing. Often times when fishing, a fish doesn't want to feel resistance when taking a bait, so by allowing the fish to take in a bait without feeling any resistance can really help sometimes. I've found that to be true especially during ice fishing. One thing I've been using to help me achieve nuetral bouyancy is Bio-Bait, it floats in water and can be very helpful. Achieving nuetral bouyancy has helped me catch more fish this winter. Check out this link, I wrote a little article about this:

The custom plastic I use float. If you watch it drop it really flutters. Neutral is very important when fishing gills.

You can definitely see the real light bites with lighter buoyancy
I carry several lengths of Ice Busters and keep changing until it floats just at the surface seems to work the best. Using different jigs and the size weight and activity of the bait make a difference.

This doesnt have much to do with neutral bouyancy, but what I have read for people targeting suspending panfish, there are two options if you dont have a vexilar or if the bite is light. WHat you do is find a small bobber which can not quite hold up the lure. this will cause the lure to gradually pull the bobber down, thus making a very slow fall through the suspended fish, once the bobber stops, it means you have a hit more than likely. SO if your fishing in 40 feet of water, and the fish are 16 feet down set the bobber stop at the approximate depth of the top level of the fish and then let it "drift" through the school. It may seem complicated but i have seen it done before.

    • Mmm mm Thanks!!!!!!!!
    • your package went in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
    • What would be the reasoning behind just using hen\ hens decoys? To put the toms at ease? I usually use the standard hen / jake combo.
    • Nice!   Yep, that looks just the way I hope to find em!  Nada for me but maybe if I get some time in the turkey woods I’ll have some better luck.
    • That's one cut I need to do on the pellet smoker. Everything so far has turned out real moist and tender,  I'm guessing since the door seals up so tight. I prefer as well to slice that day, the leftovers can go in the crockpot for shredding.. I better go get one.
    • Num that looks awesome. Bet the carcass would boil up to make a mighty fine tasty soup too!
