    How do I rig bobber stops?

 I got a pack of Eagle Claw slip bobbers for Christmas with a pair of wire bobber stops enclosed--the kind with a wire loop at one end and about 1.5 inches of loose wire at the other. There's a football shaped bead holding the loop in place and a loose, round bead on the long ends whose sole purpose seems to be falling off and rolling under the kitchen radiator. I'm relatively new at this, but I doubt that tactic catches very many fish. There's also a small plastic ring that the loose wire ends come wrapped around. How do you rig these stoppers on your line? Do you use them in tandem somehow with the plastic ring? I know this is probably pretty basic info, but like I said, I'm new at this and I'm befuddled. I figure if BFHP can't help, no one can. Thanks and remember that fish love Englebert Humperdinck: "Please Release Me." (I hear them singing it all the time.)

   Bobber Stops from Ron (169.152.143.189)  1/27/1999 10:15:00 AM
 You put your fishing line thru the looped end of the wire. Then slide the rubber stop along with the plastic bead down the wire and over your line.I wet the line when I do this. You will notice a kink in the fishing line from the wire, just cut that off. Now wet the line again and slide the rubber stop and bead up the line. Next come a bobber with a hole from the top to bottom of it. Just add a snap swivel and a hook and you are all set. The small ring is just to keep them together. Don't worry if you lost the bead under your kitchen radiator it will work without them,the rubber stop may get stuck in the hole on top of the bobber. If you still have question feel free to e-mail me. They work really great for casting under over hanging branches.

 I had the same problem with that kind of bobberstop so I went to the kind that has the red beads (lost about a million of those in my boat) and the little yellow string on a short piece of plastic tube. I found that those are alot easer to use. All you do is slip your line through the plastic tube then pull the string off towards the rod then tighten the knot by pulling on each end of the string. Then cut off the excess string, slide on one of those pesky little beads then yor slip bobber, your hook and you're ready to fish! I've used this set-up for everyting from bluegill to monster pike. The best ones I've found were made by Thill. I have a couple slip-bobbers that will hold up 12" suckers. Anyway I hope this helps. GOOD LUCK AND GOOD FISHIN'
   bobber stops from Carl (169.237.136.27)  1/27/1999 9:08:00 PM
 Lee, I have also been puzzled about how to rig a bobber stop with those little bead and wire thingies. Here's what I do: I slip the bobber on my line and then put a small splitshot below the bobber. I usually fish worms, minnows, jigs, etc. 12" to 18" below the bobber. Then I tie a small section of a rubber band on my line above the bobber, to fix it. There's a great book on how to rig tackle by Gary Soucie, called "Hook, Line and Sinker." That book is a great resource, with lots of illustrations. This website is also great, too. Good luck, Carl

 I used to use the wire spring type, but they turn out to be a pain, my advice would be to use the ones that come on a little plastic sleeve, they work much better. There also are some that come from thill, that are a small silicone thing that are not worth the efort, because they fall apart too soon. Now I tie my own, and its real easy, go to the catalogs and find dedows bobber stop line, get ti, and they will show you how to tie the knot, and in the long run, its cheaper and better, Wish I knew how to draw on the computer because the knot is very easy to to tie, but the secret is in the stopper material.
   Public Thanks from Lee (204.4.112.163)  1/29/1999 9:49:00 AM
 This is just a public thank you to everyone who responded to my question. All your advice is very useful, especially Ron's, with whom I traded a couple of e-mails until he straightened me out. (If anyone's interested, the wire loop peforms the same function as those needle threaders in your wife's sewing basket only instead of pulling thread through the eye of a needle, you're pulling fishing line through a rubber stopper and plastic bead. Duh.) Thanks again, BFHP buddies. May You Catch Them All and Never Lose a Lure. :-)
