I used to fish with small bobbers using only 3 small split shots and a jig and got few fish on it. I bought new casting rod/reel setup and light stuff is hard to cast so I got bigger clear bobbers and casting is good again(I like the setup). I fished with it few times and I had a strike or two but no fish so far. I'm afraid that 3/4oz lead that's hanging under the bobber will reduce my strikes(scare steel). Is my concern valid? I use fluorocarbon leaders but if the lead is too big and kills the bite my whole setup is useless. Am I ok or should I buy spinning setup for bobber fishing and use small bobbers to catch more steel?
