1. Bobber Stop: Tie the bobber stop knot on the line, use the premade rubber stops or if you are cheap like me I use the mini rubber bands, this is the most important link in this rig. This will stop your bobber at the determined depth that you want to fish, or the depth you find the fish. Make sure that the knot is tight and does not have any lose ends. The knot will be able to be reeled up without snagging on anything and will be able to be moved up and down the line easily.
2. Slip Bobber: this is the bobber that has a hole through the center to run the fishing line. Use a bobber that will hold your bait at the right depth. If the bobber is too big there will be too much resistance when the fish is biting your line, not enough it will not hold the bait up and the bobber will go under the water. Find the perfect balance so that the bobber is just floating in the water.
3. Split shot sinker: use enough weight to get your bait to set vertically in the water, but not so much that the bobber has to be huge to hold up your bait. The exception in higher winds more weight is a must with the waves and using the larger bobber for visibility.
4. Hook: the hook is the final addition to this rig. You can use a baithook, jig, flies, spoon, grub the possibilities are endless and only limited to what the fish are biting on.
