Bobbers or floats are great when crappie are in the shallows. When crappie move into the shallows in the spring, you can find crappie in as little as a couple feet of water. Using a bobber is a great way to present a lively minnow or jig to crappie in the shallows.
Slip bobbers are a great way to present your jigs or live baits at a variety of depths. Anglers use slip bobber all the time when crappie fishing. It’s one of the easiest ways to keep your baits out of the snags when you’re fishing over brush piles or over deeper weeds.
