Hi, I'm Mark The Shark with On this clip I'm going to show you how to use a floater to catch fish. A floater is pretty much a bobber, but more streamlined. It goes through the water a lot easier and it's a lot stronger than using a bobber. What you want to do is attach your main line through the swivel on top of the off floater right here; tie a knot on here; ready to go and we'll make sure it's secure. So you got your secure line to the floater and it's not going to; it's not going to come off. This part is going to be on top. Now you get your second swivel; that's where you want to put leader on. Your leader goes down here; okay and this is going to be adjustable to the amount of line you want to have under the surface. So if you want to put two or three feet, we can do that. We'll cut the leader off; here we go; that goes up here. As you can see everything is on a main line; everything is one shot. Here's your main line here; here's your floater and here's leader material right here. Now you want to put; on your leader material you want to put a hook. Hook goes right here at the end; right there and you want to tie your knot right there. This is a very very strong way to have your bait swimming near the surface as, as oppose to the bobber which is just attach to it. "One, two, three, four, five"; here we go. Okay. So this is where you want to put your live bait right here. Everything is all on the same line; everything is all run straight down through the hook. So when you get a bite; your bobber, your floater is going to go; you'll actually hear it sometimes, knocking like this and you're ready to go. This is Mark The Shark; thank you for watching.
