If you are fishing with monofilament line, you should use rubber bobber stops. If you are using a braided line, the dog bone bobber stops are your best choice when fishing with a slip bobber. They are very durable and won’t slip up or down your mainline by themselves.
Slip bobbers are very versatile floats and are almost always a better choice than fixed bobber. As they can slide up and down your line, they can be fished at any given depth. So, fishing in deeper water would definitely call for a slip bobber.
A slip bobber is a bobber, or float, that is not fixed or clipped on, but instead can slide freely up and down your fishing line. You can decide the depth you want to fish with your slip bobber by putting a bobber stop onto your line, which you can adjust according to your desired fishing depth
Rigging a slip bobber is really simple. All you need is a hook, a leader, a swivel, a sinker, a bobber stop with a stop bead, and your slip bobber. Fishing with a slip bobber rig will allow you to vary and adapt your fishing depth, which can increase your catch rate immensely.
