Bobbers / Floats / Slip Bobbers

Fish Shallow

Bobbers or floats work well for northern pike.  Live shiners, chubs and suckers will all work well under a bobber.  You can have a lot of success fishing with these baits around shallow water weeds in the 3 to 8 foot range.

Fish Deeper with Slip Bobbers

When you need to get down deeper with your live baits, try using a slip bobber.  Northern pike can often be found suspended over deeper water and a slip bobber rig and lively minnow is a great way to get them to bite.
