I have been thinking about how to fish with a bobber over a course of very different underwater features, like a shallow riffle that turns into a deep hole, then into a run or something. If you have a normal bobber fishing rig, you can't really fish the whole area, whereas if you have a bobber/drift fishing rig, you can. I know that bobber fishing is a type of drift fishing but what about this rig: your normal bobber fishing float over with a bobber stop on your main. Then tie a barrel swivel where you are going to have your leader, then leave the tag long and crimp on a little split shot. Then tie on around 3 feet of your leader. Then your drift fishing hooks. So then when you cast into the flats, this is effectively just like drift fishing, letting the rig drift along, then when it goes into the hole, the bait will suspend to wherever you put the bobberstop. Does this rig have a different result than fishing a riffle with a bobber?
