I cast it,let it sink a few seconds and start reeling in slowly.Or you can reel,pause,reel,pause...works as well.Never fished it with a cork bobber....it may work,but i believe it was made to cast and reel in.

When the bite is tough and i'm just out having some fun i'll tie a road runner on also.Bluegills like these as well.
The magic lure in your tackle box is the lure you have the most confidence in.

I always pinch the barb down because I am usually fishing them in heavy timber and the barb removal makes it much easier to retrieve the bait when it gets hung.

Count it down and retrieve it just fast enough that the blade turns.  Count down to different depths until you find the fish.

I don't know about the bobber.  I always use jigs without spinners when using a float.  It could work.

Great lure for panfish of all kinds. I've also caught trout on them, as well as largemouth and even pike! I usually fish them on 4# line on a 6' UL BPS Micro-Lite rod. Pre-wet the marabou tail! Then I cast it out and let it actually hit the bottom - regardless. After my line goes slack, I start a slow reel back, keeping my rod tip about 11 O'clock - ending at 9 o'clock at the end of my retrieve - watching the tip for the entire retrieve. The tip will twitch, go slack or load up....set the hook! I, too, crimp down the barb as most of my fish are C&R.
