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

Temple Fork Outfitters Trout-Panfish Series Spinning Rods - EOL


Reported by
Pierce Knarr

Green Lake (WI) (WI)

Pierce Knarr reported catching Panfish / Bluegill using the Bobbers technique and Temple Fork Outfitters Trout-Panfish Series Spinning Rods - EOL on Green Lake (WI). Additional comments from this report: "Bluegills are starting to get on their beds in 7-12 feet. Using side imaging to find where they are located makes this process very easy. Pitch out a slip bobber with a small jig is the best way to catch these. We released all of our bluegills so more 10” fish can grow like the one showed!!!!"

SoMo Fish Co

Lake Taneycomo (MO)

SoMo Fish Co reported catching Trout using the Bobbers technique and Temple Fork Outfitters Trout-Panfish Series Spinning Rods - EOL on Lake Taneycomo. Additional comments from this report: "Zero generation and high skies. We caught all our fish under a float. We caught them on everything from small hair jigs to pink power worms on 1/100 oz jig heads. Just bounce around until you find them. When you get in front of them it typically does not take long to get a bite. The big fish of the day was the one pictured a 21 1/4 inch rainbow that was released to be caught another day đź‘Ť"

St. Croix Premier Spinning Rods

$150.00 – $170.00

Reported by
Kail’s Fishing Reports

Lake Minnetonka (MN)

From right after ice out tell mid May, fish the channels they start to warm up first. Look for ones that are small and are where the sun shines on them all day, they will warm up first, also ones with wood dock posts that is a big plus, crappies love hanging around wood. Cast around the dock, dock posts, under the docks, each day is different and they move around. Watch your electronics, pay close attention to your surface temp as you are scouting or catching fish to see what they like. Tip your jig with a minnow or a plastic. On Minnetonka the crappies love pink and white. I like the Thill weighted bobbers, you need less weight for the fish to pull it down and they cast further.

Shimano Zodias Spinning Rods

$209.99 – $229.99

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!

David Jue

Caballo Reservoir (NM)

David Jue reported catching Trout using the Bobbers technique and Shimano Zodias Spinning Rods on Caballo Reservoir. Additional comments from this report: "Trout and Walleye were stationed behind big rocks with low current. In-line spinners in natural colors or white and garlic scented dough bait worked well."

Reported by
Adrian Urso

Kentucky Lake (TN)

Adrian Urso reported catching Panfish / Bluegill using the Bobbers technique and Shimano Zodias Spinning Rods on Kentucky Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Go to Fast Eddie’s bait and tackle off of US 68 and get you a couple packs of wax worms, put the boat in the water and find you the closest cove and catch you some dinner."
