Q: New to bobber fishing –
well new to fishing overall – what do I need
to look for in selecting bobbers – you assortment
is quite extensive and I am having trouble with selecting
bobbers that I would like to use for fishing small
ponds around my housing complex.
A: Remember every little detail counts
Keep in mind that effective float fishing starts
with solid understanding of what you do. In order
for you to significantly improve your fish catching
skills you have to be able to select right bobbers
for your fishing style. In order to be successful
in bobber fishing you have to follow simple rules.
· Fish for panfish with small to medium size
bobbers that will provide you with best sensitivity
and strike indication.
· Explore fishing with floats that have different
body styles – weather changes consistently
– increase of wind as well as size of the
waves may affect your bobber fishing. Selecting
proper body style of the bobber for such changes
in fishing conditions may improve your ability to
catch more fish.
· Selecting bobber style and size should
be determined by size of waves, wind strength, the
depth of the water, shyness of fish, current, type
of bait use and required casting distance
Q: Hi- Do you sell any bobbers
specifically for salt water striped bass fishing.
I'm worried about the bobbers pinching the line and
bluefish breaking the line.Thanks John.
A: It is all about the numbers. We pulled some
sales data from last year spring stripe bass migration
( the states that we took into this data were NJ,
NY, CT, RI and MA) We have also looked into our
European sales data and product selection that has
been used for saltwater fishing in Baltic sea expeditions
( not for stripe bass of course)
This is the list of bobbers that was moving in large
quantities for that bass migration season

one of your bobbers is best for fast running streams

through your site? I can’t see how! Or is there

Q: Your Bumble bee marmooshaks
are well-known in ice fishing community. I was wondering
if we can use them for crappie fishing here in Alabama.
A: Fact is that our Bumble bee found a steady place
in North American anglers tackle boxes. Bentley
tungsten jigs where used by our pro staff and were
directly related to winning Ice
Team of the Year, smaller sizes 1 and 2 were
used by our National
Polish Ice Team who took second place (silver
medals) during 2010 World Ice fishing championships.
Mentioned accomplishments are all related to ice
fishing, but in fact Bentley
Fishing Bumble bee jigs as well a Tarantula
jigs are Just as deadly for panfishing during
any other season of the year. They are superbly
fitted for fishing Crappies, bluegills, sunfish
and perch. Bentley jigs can be used in regular jigging
methods as well as fishing methods that involve
specific water depth penetration that can be achieved
with simple addition of any custom panfishing bobbers
from our collection.
Q: I fish with lures that
are 7 grams ( ¼ oz ) to 30 grams ( 1 oz )
– which version of lure retriever will be
best matched to free my lures. John S. WI
A: Version B – 120 grams 4.5 oz is suited
for this task. Demon B 120 is designed to handle
pulling our lures of this size.
Q: What is the difference
between lure retriever A and B – is it just
Joseph B. MI
A: Correct, the difference between lure retriever
A and B is capacity (weight). What makes these two
models stand apart is the weight – that in
fact in some occasions creates a huge difference
when your lure retriever dives down to your lure
though ad penetrates heavy underwater vegetation.
The 170 grams edition allows you to hit the bait
with greater force in case if the lure needs to
be pushed back from its hook set. We recommend going
with a smaller 12 grams version for your light and
smaller size lures and selecting a 170 grams lure
retriever for medium to large size baits.
Q: Looking for night fishing
Walleye bobbers – which fishing floats would
I need to be looking at in your selection.
Q/Comment: Hello Bentley,
"I started panfishing extensively for the past
2 years. I first purchased your product a year ago
just searching on the internet for well crafted floats.
I had recently purchased 201-58-020GRN & blue
expert floats. Great product!!! I love the design,
especially the fish design and the colors of blue
and green. Is it possible to add a red color to your
line of these well crafted expert floats. Not only
it should look good in the water, also it should look
good on your hanging on your bream buster :))"
Todd, FWB, FL
A: Hello Todd – Our Company fabricate an
assortment of bobbers in red
colors. Unfortunately the bobbers that you selected
are not available in red. Vast majority of our bobber
selection is engineered to suit fishing anglers
in Europe and color selection is based on the demand
created by our European clients. The selection of
bobbers available in US was based on the demand
of anglers who provided their feedback and color
selection during our sport show exhibits and presentations.
Once again, our team appreciates your remark, as
always any comment counts. We see that you enjoy
panfishing, we do offer one of our bobbers in red
– click here

but the body of the float is much wider that the
panfishing bobbers from your purchase selection.
