Bottom bouncers are used mostly for trolling and drifting with live bait. You can very easily use bottom bouncers to troll with artificial lures as well. Walleye anglers will often use bottom bouncers to troll with spinner rigs (also called crawler harnesses). Bottom bouncers do a great job of holding bottom without getting snagged up on rocks or timber. Weeds will hang on these rigs, so it is not recommended to troll in weeds unless you are actually holding the rod to make sure your presentation stays just above the weeds.
