Omnia collects thousands of detailed fishing reports from anglers across the country to power our local recommendations. Here are the top Hooks recommendations for using the Bobbers technique mentioned in fishing reports from anglers near you.

VMC Aberdeen Hook


Reported by
Sangamon Outdoors

Pug Hole Lake (MN)

We hit the mid lake reefs and worked all the way around the the lilipads. We moved west, then north and finally east. We slid the slip bobbers up and down. We used leaches, red worms, night crawlers, jigs, jigs tipped with crappie nibblers and jigs sprayed with attractant. Everything producted. We caught bluegill, pumpkinseed, crappie, largemouth bass and northern pike. After fishing hard for bass and musky on other lakes, a slow day of just catching panfish was great!

Owner Walleye Bait Hook


Reported by
Wild Urban Adventures YouTube

Upper Prior Lake (MN)

Wild Urban Adventures YouTube reported catching Walleye using the Bobbers technique and Owner Walleye Bait Hook on Upper Prior Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Fishing for walleye is still good right now just as the sun is going down. Small window of opportunity for good walleye action. We fished from shore from boat launch areas soaking a fathead underneath a night led bobber. Plain hook or colored hooks with small split shot under a light bobber, around 2-3 feet under bobber. Cast bobber out and let sit for a few minutes. Give line a twitch every so often. Reel in any slack and kee line as tight as you can for when they bite, so you can set the hook on them. Might have to let them take the bobber for a few seconds before setting hook. They are very light biters, especially before and after their active moment during sun going down. Use the medium size fatheads, not the crappie minnows. "

Two Inlets Lake (MN)

Quick meat run after work. Set up in the basin and got my bobber poles out. 9-12" eaters were waiting and pretty willing to bite. There has been a lot of fishing pressure by the looks of the Swiss cheese ice out there. Very light bite and they would drop a minnow if they felt any bobber pressure. I cut my 3" foam bobbers down to just hold a split shot and a red hook with a glow bead. January 31st, no snow, 50 degrees out

Gamakatsu Tournament Grade Wire Octopus Hook


Reported by
Jason Stegenga

Mille Lacs Lake (MN)

Jason Stegenga reported catching Walleye using the Bobbers technique and Gamakatsu Tournament Grade Wire Octopus Hook on Mille Lacs Lake. Additional comments from this report: "We were power fishing mud flats on the northeast end of the lake. Most fish were positioned right on the edge of the flats and would hit immediately after dropping on them. We would only drop on suspended or multiple fish. Leeches were the ticket."
