bottom bouncers

3 posts in this topic

Whats the idea behind bottom bouncers.Is the idea to keep your bait up off the bottom, say in a rocky area, where a lindy sinker would get caught between the rocks.Or why wouldn't you just use a lindy rig.

Snag resistance is a bonus as is the heavier weights available with bouncers, for the ability to move a bit faster, say with spinners..

the bottom bouncer allows you to fish cranks and spinner rigs at higher speeds and keep the bait you are using in the strike zone. it is a very effective tactic on certain bodies of water in the state. if you ask the guys on the st. louis river how many of them use bouncers 90% would say they do. it is a great way to fish live bait and cranks in deep water and current if you dont want to mess with lead core.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
