The 8″ Panfish Float by Gapen features easy connection to your line and allows the angler to easily change out floats for larger floats when the waves increase or the wind rises. Tall float design keeps your line beneath the water and allows a finesse presentation you need to get elusive bites of perch, panfish, bluegills, trout and all species of fish. Use this float in cold water conditions and when the fish are not feeding aggressively – or all the time to improve your pick-ups. Unlike tube-style slip bobbers, this float keeps your line BENEATH the surface and allows the angler to stick the float in place.
Panfish Float Fishing Tip- Still Bobber in Wind!
To make your floats stick in windy conditions, simply cast past your target area, then lower your rod tip under water and crank in toward you. You can see the line sinking under water [ very important ]. With your line under water, you can properly present a bait in the strike zone much longer and in a more appealing fashion to fish. This is the difference between limiting out and getting skunked in many cases.
Constructed with South American balsa wood, a SPECIAL SLIP-N-LOCK line-attaching device, and a through-glass stem, Gapen’s floats are the strongest, most sensitive balsa floats on the market today. This is Gapen’s Hungarian import. We do so because they are the WORLD’S FINEST in quality and performance. Constructed of South American balsa wood, quality epoxy paint and finished with premium clear varnish. Slip-N-Lock fishing floats are fitted with newly-patented snaplock attach/release devices. Fluorescent red float tips, set high above float, create easy visual contact for the angler who works live bait such as chubs, fatheads, sucker minnows, shad, worms, crickets and dead bait, for species such as bluegill, crappie, bass, walleye, catfish and big game species.
