Ive been making slip corks for sometime and nothing beats them.
Super sensitive. Im guessing the thinner and longer the cork the more sensitive it is.
Ive been fishing anywhere from 3ft-6ft of water to be in the range. i always fish middle first.
Meaning 3 1/2foot and moving the slipknot everyonce in awhile to make sure i can find the zone of where the fish are. So my ideal set up is slipknot, bead, cork-float, splitshot ,and treble hook or j hook.
6 inches to a foot off the bottem is good.
fishing is one thing. catching is another
