Fish On A Spring  


During the winter months something happens with fish. As the temperatures get colder and the oxygen depletes from the lake, we run into slow or sluggish fish and we typically call it the mid-winter blues. We'll say things like oh they weren't biting or they were picky, but the truth is the fish still have to eat. We just miss the finicky light bite of blue gills and other pan fish that inhale and spit out a bait in a fraction of a second, sometimes so quickly and lightly that we don't even see our rod tips move. That's where a spring bobber comes in handy.
 

 

 



A spring bobber is basically an attachment of your fishing rod that is a wire, more sensitive to the light bites than even your most sensitive rod tip. The original spring bobbers were springs removed from pens, stretched out a little and attached with electricians tape. Today, there are several styles to choose from, everything from a coiled up spring to a thin wire with a loop at the end of it to run your line through. Most will attach with some shrink tubing or by clipping on, but you can always use a little piece of electricians tape or epoxy to make sure it stays put. Personally, I prefer the clip on type. They attach quickly (clip on) and will adjust up and down my rod to allow for different weight jigs and still lets me maintain control of my bait. Give one a try this season and see how many more fish you catch.



Until next time friends..
