Well we are soon moving into that time of year for shallow fish lookingfor spawing beds qnd slip bobbers rule.
When they get on shore in 2 or less ft I pull out my10
ftProAngler set shallow and drop it under those fresh buds of button willows on shore with gravel or sand
I use 20#braiad and you wont lose th e set up if you do get alittle aggressive on really brushy spots
The hook #2Matsou sickle will bend or if im using a leader (10#Stren mono) will break

Used this setup in Kansas in the spring. With this setup usally the leader breaks below the snap, saving the snap and the strike indecater, it easy to put on another leader and hook. I put my weight above the snap.

I just use 8lb Stren mono and dont have many problems. Most times, the hook bends and I get loose.

I was doing good till I seen this post. Now I'll dream of blooming dogwoods till I get to drop a minnow in the bushes. Only prob I have with this setup is when fish swipes the bait before I get the fish.

I try to avoid the cork all together, but if the wind dictates the presentation my bobber will be tiny during the spawn. I try to avoid all the ties when fishing shallow Bc not much distance is gonna break if you snag.
Teeny booger weight above the jig business will keep your setup intact if you snap off your jig. Then just tie on and back to fishing, quietly.
