The Red Baron Long Distance Ace – longest casting bobber / float – waggler missile will help you reach far-away spots. Goes a long way on light line up to 70 yards and consistently longer than any you have every fished.
Long Distance Cast Bobber – 6 gram Waggler Missile
If you need to cover large areas of water and deliver either artificial or live baits long distance, this weighted float offers you the ability to make long-distance casts on spinning tackle to fish your extreme conditions. If you are fishing deep water over 20 ft., or you wish to cast 150 – 200 feet away, this float will do so. This will be the longest float you have ever thrown. Long distances can be achieved with very easy casts.
** PRODUCT NOTE – Red baron color variations are IN STOCK. The float differs in color and will be either black and yellow or green and yellow – you will receive different colors temporarily when ordering this product. Float tips are all the same high-visibility orange.
This can also be fished with 1/32 oz. jig and requires only 2 grams of split shot to balance the float which saves the angler money.
If you are not used to casting this float, your first casts should be soft-medium so you can feel the power of this missile-style weighted waggler float. Slowly add a little more power on your next casts and see the distances you can achieve. The use of a longer rod and light line will create tools for you to reach far out into lakes and reservoirs and even fish 20 – 30 feet below the surface at long-distance.
This is a great float for fishing plastics or small minnows for crappie, perch, walleye, panfish and trout. This can also be fished with small artificial worms for bass as well as half a crawler, leeches (great), grubs, particle baits, red worm, wax worm or crickets – very versitile float.
We suggest using a Quick Change Float Snap so that you can adjust to changing conditions and swap out a different weight and size of float if needed. If the wind dies down, you should always go with the lightest float possible. This float is great for high winds and in waves.
Use a longer rod and a big reel loaded with light line (4 lb. or 3 lb.) line to max out your casts. As you use 6 lb. or heavier lines, the casts will go shorter, but still a long way out from your position. After the float lands in the water, you can quickly reel in with your rod tip below the water and sink the line. Sinking the line will keep your float in place even at a long distance away.
The float (bobber) comes pre-loaded with it’s own weight which means you won’t have to use as much split shot to sink your rig, saving you money and setup time. At longer distances, you can leave some split shot off to raise the float antenna upward- offering high visibility at long distance. The high-visibility yellow stem can be seen clear across the lake!
Can be fished on Firewire braided or mon0 filament lines and using many baits including baits up to medium-sized minnows.
