1 to 2 feet For the bobber, a smaller one is more sensitive and offers less resistance to the fish so it can eat your bait easily. Finally, a short distance between the bobber and the hook (1 to 2 feet, normally) gets your worm in front of many fish yet keeps your hook from snagging the bottom.

Can you use a jig with a bobber?

The bobber allows you to present your jig vertically and keep it there indefinitely allowing for a slower presentation. Fishing your jig from one hole to another takes practice. It can be mastered in time. Another great thing about this rig is that you can use a very light jig head.

When should you use a bobber?

Theyre best suited for fishing waters no deeper than the length of your rod. This style keeps your bait at a preset depth while fishing. In deeper water, or when casting long distances, use a slip bobber to eliminate casting problems caused by the long length of line between the bobber and hook.
