Wacky Rigs Under Bobbers

Recommended Posts

I think I read about this somewhere, maybe in In-Fishermen, I'm not sure. Has anyone ever treid this with any success? It seems like it would work pretty good. The bobber on a windy day or just a little chop would add its own action to the wacky rig drifting along at a slow pace. How could you go wrong? Just curious to know if anyone uses this technique? or any comments? pros or cons?

It was in In-Fisherman.  The article was a good one.  I have tried this only twice though and I will say without success though.  I wouldn't rule it out though.  I still like the thought of it and will try it again.

this is my favorite techniqe for lunch time i always have a rod riged with a slip bobber and a wacky rigged senko throw it out and have a coffee and sandwich and have caught alot of fish that way.Some of my tournament buddies have seen me fishing this way and make fun of me but who cares as long as it catches fish

Yep, its in my infisherman january mag.  Its under the float and fly techniques.  I need to read the mag.  Good thing I brought it to work.  I've never used anything like that.  I can see it being a better stream technique then lake. JMO.

Fred McClintock is one of the best multi-species guides in the country. He makes the point in this article that Float N' Fly is a technique of "last resort." Fishing the F-N-F is slow and boring, not particularly productive and even when it is successful, generally produces little fish.

I wouln't waste a lot of time learning or using this technique if I were you.

That makes a lot of sense.

I think people are confusing Float 'n' Fly with the wacky rig/bobber set up.

If you drift a wacky rigged 5" senko under a float, will it only produce small fish? How about a 6" soft jerkbait?

I can see how what amounts to a crappie jig doesn't generally produce huge fish, but the bobber/wacky thing included things like drifting a 9" Forktail Dinger through the tops of flooded mesquite trees on El Salto. Sounds like it would work to me.
