How To Rig The Muddy River Catfishing Bobber

Here are a couple of different ways that I like to rig up the Muddy River Catfishing Bobber. This bobber is excellent for super sized baits. I’ve had 4oz of weight along with a 12″ live bait and it doesn’t even faze the bobber. The only thing that will make it go underwater is the big fish at the other end of the line. They are great for catfish, muskie, and any other big fish that requires a large live bait. Add a glow stick to the built-in holder and you’re ready for a fun night of fishing!

Have you ever used the bobber with your standard
bottom rig, with the weight on the bottom and the hook in the middle? Great video.

Looking good brother…

Jason Ritter says:

Kris sir I would say you are no doubt the most informative person I watch on YouTube. keep it up.and keep making great content. have a good night and god bless. oh yah and tight lines.

William Morris says:

another way I found is instead of using the slider thing, us a swivel with a clasp because it is almost the same thing

GeorgeGaming says:

this has helped me out alot to figure out how to make my a rig for bobber fishing catfish. I been struggling with just a sinker so hopefully this might be what i need to change things up a little

Fishingin Tennessee says:

I fish in this area where there are some big channel cats but I’ve tried live bait cut bait and everything is not working I don’t know why they aren’t getting hook I use a 5 ought circle hook and usually cut bluegill and I let it’s sit for about 30 minuets before I change bait but usually I don’t even get a nibble would You know why that this might be happening bc I know there are some big ones I there they just won’t bite do you know why ?

Gary Biggs says:

I assume the weight is for making the rig easier to cast? I often fish w/a b-gill under a bobber w/ no weight at all or just a small weight between the hook and mainline swivel to try and keep the b-gill under the surface as they tend to want to swim up.
