BIG TOP CARLISLE BOBBERS
« on: Mar 23, 2021, 04:08 PM »
Does anyone know where I can find these bobbers? I have checked the web and tried to call the manufacturer to no avail. I am looking for the slip bobbers with the black slide on the bottom making them either a fixed bobber or a slip bobber. I really love these cause I can see them from a distance. I have been able to locate the ones with a spring. These are garbage, (line kink) imho cause they destroy line and are impossible to fish deeper than about 6 feet. I know they come in different sizes. I would love to find a box of 3/4 or 1 inch. Not sure if they stopped making these or what. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

cant picture what you mean on bottom.  is it the ones with the wire under a sleeve on bottom?  push and turn so it leaves a loop for slip mode? 
some fishermen tell lies,  this one doesnt need to

i havent seen one like that for a while. 

couldnt you make one by putting a rubber hose over the stem of spring bobber?  you could also add a nut or two, above the hose for weight, to add casting distance.
.
look up "the angler" in helmer and call them.  that place is packed with stuff.  your gona have to locate some old stock im guessing.

BPS is advertising the Big Top Bobbers in an assortment pack. You would have to buy 4 Bobbers to get just one that you wanted.

i found several spring bobbers that work the way you want also.  you just slide spring up and it exposes hole for slip rigging.  you mite check your bobbers and see if you have any like this.

the spring snaps up n down.  not all made like that.

(bigr i drug and dropped that pic in one motion)

far as i can tell its made by comal tackle.  i didnt find many like it searching the net.  just have to look for the bulge below the spring stopper.  that holds spring up for slip mode.

as far as the "big top" i use a red straw.  taught to me be an older panfish addict years ago.




just glue it on top.  fits perfectly on tiny ice float pegs too! thats what i was originally shown it on.
