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'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
