Last weekend I discovered a great product for catfishing, the Katbobber. The Katbobber is a robust foam bobber that allows you to fish with larger than usual bait. Heavy bait that can pull other bobbers under is no problem for the Katbobber. And everyone knows the bigger the bait, the bigger the fish! Using the Katbobber, you can load your hook with sizeable pieces of cut shad or even live bait and track your line without difficulty.
Another advantage to the Katbobber is you can fish overgrown areas that before might have been inaccessible. If you toss your line without a bobber into heavy cover, you will inevitably lose your rig and possibly lose your fish. Using a Katbobber, you can dangle your bait right into a submerged growth without so much risk of getting tangled up. And fish love to hide in heavy cover.
The Katbobber’s larger size makes it easy to see, even at night, because you can attach a glow stick which clearly shows up in pitch black conditions. If you are fishing for the big cats, this product is indispensable. You can easily tell when something is toying with your bait. Even in choppy conditions, the Katbobber holds up and marks your line.
Whether you are fishing deep or closer to the surface, the Katbobber can still work its magic as it can be adjusted for depth. I like to run two lines at different depths, as do many who fish for catfish.
