There are several advantages to using a fishing bobber. First, a buoyant and brightly-colored bobber can help you determine whether or not you have a bite. They're also useful for keeping bait suspended at a particular depth, and for allowing currents to transfer the line across the water to areas that may be difficult to approach closely by boat. Bobbers — also referred to as floats — are a great, inexpensive way to up your fishing game. And if you want to further increase your odds of snagging a hefty fish, be sure to take a peek at the growing variety of fishing lures on the market today.
