Bobber Setup (Rod/Reel/Line)

Wed, June 30, 2021

Bobber fishing is one of the simplest forms of fishing. This makes it great for beginners learning to fish or pros looking to slow things down a bit. Brad will take you through all the equipment you'll need to be successful during a day of bobber fishing.

Rod:

The rod you want is going to be very light so there's a nice bend in the rod. Adjust to a slightly heavier rod according to what you'll be fishing.

Reel:

The reel is the most important part of this setup. Brad likes to stick to a 1000 size reel, but will bump up to a 2500 size reel if he's going for bass or walleye.

Line:

Your line needs to match the setup to be effective so the lighter the better. Brad likes to generally use 8Lb braid to a 6Lb fluorocarbon leader, but will generally bump that up slightly for bass and walleye.
