    I was wondering if bobbers are allowed in tournements. I also wonder if any Bass Pros would consider giving up that direct feel of a fish hit that you don't get when using a bobber. I would think having the ability to get their lure or bait in a better location or make a better presetation would be more important to the PROS. After all getting them to hit is more important then feeling it.

    Bass Pros willing to try a BulletBobber in a tournament wanted.
     

  2. I believe that boobers are permitted, but live bait isn't. That is the only stipulation I have ever seen, other than trolling for bass is illegal in tourneys too.

    I only know of two techniques that a boober is used for and I have never seen them in a tourney. One is the float and fly, which is apparently deadly on smallmouth on windy points. And the other I just saw in Bassmaster, where a guy hooked a senko wacky-style under a float.

    I would guess it would be legal in my club as long as it didn't use live bait.

  6. It was a Fruedian slip, I think. I apologize. My two finger typing style causes many errors.

    That just what I need to help sales a little mix of Boobers and Bobbers. I need a video that combines the two.
