I came up with a very inexpensive and easy way to make slip bobbers for fishing. After pricing large slip bobbers, I decided to come up with a way that wouldn't break the bank. I made a video on how to make them and posted it on you tube. I used a coffee straw and a swim noodle to create this bobber. The position of the straw in the video is totally up to you. This is how I like to fish this....it floats the way that is most desirable to me. however, the straw can be placed vertically (through the wall) if you want. I like it placed cross-section. Hope you enjoy this.... and if you like it, please send it to your buddies. You can make many of these at a fraction of the price of a store-bought large slip bobber.

How big of a fish does it take to pull a bobber like that under? Or are you just waiting to see lateral movement instead?


I really liked your ideas for making the smaller ones. Im gonna have to make some of these.
