No more Snags with this Float Fishing Rig!

No more Snags with this Float Fishing Rig!

Whether you are pier fishing, inlet/jetty fishing, bridge fishing or river fishing, the float fishing rig works its magic by keeping your bait above snags, while staying in the strike zone of fish. This fishing rig is used by anglers all over the world, it works for many kinds of fishing. You need to be able to set this up correctly if you want to really start catching fish. We find the key element to focus on is the depth you are fishing it. You need to make sure it is set your bobber stopper correctly. Too much line and your sinker will be on the bottom, too little line and your hooks are not in the strike zone of the fish. We teach exactly how to set this rig up in our brand new ADVENTURE GUIDE! Check it out if you are up for an adventure with Hey Skipper and want to learn the fine details on how to use a float rig!

Our vision at Hey Skipper is to be the best source of helpful information to anyone who wants to get into the world of fishing! Help support our channel by visiting us on our website and downloading our Ebooks!

    Brendon (Hey Skipper), I just want to compliment how wonderful your videos are with so much education for fishing styles, rigs, baits, tackle, and etc. you do a phenomenal job with detail. I also want to compliment you and let you know how respected you are for your conservation efforts and the way you show respect to conserve our fisheries. Prime example is letting the Sheepshead with eggs go instead to produce many more wonderful fish!! Much respect to you, you have a great thing going keep it up!!!

    We need you to entertain yourself on the Great Lakes through our different seasons. You enjoy fishing so much that you are very interesting to watch. AND NO DAMN MUSIC!!! I like your drive to play with different ideas too.

  26. George Barco on August 5, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    Question, where can I buy that floater?? I haven’t been able to find it. Thank you in advance

  27. Kerry Foster on August 5, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    Yes take your eyes off the float for a few seconds; look back – it’s gone oooohhhhh another missed bite!!!

  28. Karl Conway on August 5, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    How do you know what length to set your bobber stopper at if you are unsure of the depth, is there an easy way of judging this or knowing this Brendan/Erin ???

  29. scott M on August 5, 2022 at 10:17 pm

    Serious question! Is hi/lo rig a saltwater fishing term because I have always known it to be called a drop shot rig on fresh water.

  30. Suren Bhola on August 5, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    Thanks Skipper Awesome rig presentation πŸ‘πŸ‘

  34. edgar delacruz on August 5, 2022 at 10:31 pm

  35. p2thejay Munro on August 5, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    The photos he showed of the fish at the start in New Zealand flounders have more of a pointed angled body look more like a diamond and Brill have the rounded head and is the meat of that fish white or yellowish over there???

  36. Rey surigaonon tv on August 5, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    thank you sharing this video me too I like fishing.

  37. ARCSTREAMS on August 5, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    idk about salt water sheephead but i caught fresh water drum and the meat is too rubbery, tried different methods for cooking it like poor mans lobster or crab etc and no its not for me this fish, perhaps it would be good for fish jerky or pickled fish?

  38. Moon Khan on August 5, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Good information for fish hunter

  39. Michael A. Rodriguez on August 5, 2022 at 10:37 pm

  44. metallical87 on August 5, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    what if you overestimate the depth when setting it and still get snagged?

  45. kid vicious on August 5, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    I hate drums.

  46. Mark Forster on August 5, 2022 at 10:44 pm

  47. Mario Puzo on August 5, 2022 at 10:45 pm
