Slip Bobber Rig

For an easy-to-use rig that is also very effective, look no further than the slip bobber rig. Also known as the slip float rig, the slip bobber rig design allows for easy depth adjustment thanks to the ability to quickly change the location of the bobber stop. It’s also a very sensitive rig that lets you feel the fish bite right away so you can hook them before they get away. You can use the slip bobber rig for both saltwater and freshwater fishing. It works especially well when targeting catfish, panfish, mackerel, snook, tarpon, trout, and redfish.
