Hi I'm Mark the Shark with On this clip I'm going to show you how to use a bobber to fish. This keeps the bait on the surface, keeps it away from the bottom, bottom fish are a little different than surface fish so if you want to keep the bait near the surface or pretty close to the surface what we do now is grab your leader, grab your main line, put it on the bottom right there, okay, attach it there and then you want to get to your top one here, okay, and you come across like that and make sure it's on the loop right there where it is nice and snug and it will have a tendency to slide a little bit when the big fish comes but for the most part it's going to stay pretty much in the same area on your line. Now it's going to be straight up and down just like this. Now you want to just come down here and put your hook or you could even put a little lead on it and keep your bait straight down put a little egg sinker on it right there, okay, tie your hook on here, okay, one, two, three, four, five. This is where your bait is going to be right here, about a foot and a half down. If you want to adjust it you can just loosen up these little things on top and slide it down and it will slide all the way down, up and down, see up and down, there you go. So you want it down a foot just do it like that and you're ready to go. This is a great way to keep your bait right on the surface, right there, you can see it's straight up and down. When a fish bites it it will pull right down and you know you've got a fish on. That's the way you do it, there you go, a perfect way to get your bait on the surface. I'm Mark the Shark. Thank you for watching.
