North American Fishing Club Magazine Memebers:
“This is the best bobber I’ve ever used!”
“The BulletBobber Dualfin can keep your lure to the side of the boat while trolling. It’s also easy to see and setup, and it causes little resistance or interference when you’re reeling in a fish.”

"It allows you to work a lure or bait presentation from side to side to cover more water with each cast, or zigzag around structure. Like having a remote control bobber. It gave me the confidence that I was fishing as effectively and efficiently as possible."

"This ability to change tracking direction from afar can be used to present baits and lures in novel ways. Cast where you want and then use the directional tracking to work the water."
I bought a pack with one of each size a while back...and just yesterday tried them out. As you can see from me ordering more...they must have worked. I like to fish for yellow bass, white bass, and crappie. My favorite way to do this is to pull tube jigs with the trolling motor. The problem I was having was when the fish get up in 5 feet of water or less. I can still pull the jigs with the trolling motor but I was spooking more fish than I was catching...so I had to resort to casting...which is OK if you have already found the fish...but very time consuming if you are still looking for fish. I have tried small planer boards to pull my jigs out to the side of the boat but they were all too bulky. I tried the bullet bobber yesterday...and it worked great. I caught some of the 30+ fish I caught in less than 3 feet of water.
Thanks for a great new tool that puts more fish in my boat...I'll be trying them out on stripers and hybrids this spring...now that I don't have to use oversized planer boards.

The BulletBobber works like a planer board that offers directional control. It allows you to work a lure or bait presentation from side to side to cover more water with each cast, or zigzag around structure, such as stumps, rocks and weed beds. After only a few casts, I mastered the simple technique that makes the bobber flip over and travel in the opposite direction with a twitch of the rod tip. When retrieved at faster speeds the Bullet dives to give you versatility to fish different depths.
The day I first used the BulletBobber wasn’t ideal for fishing: 30-mph winds and temperatures in the mid-50s. but I hardly noticed the weather because I was having so much fun working the BulletBobber. It felt like having a remote control bobber on a string, and it gave me the confidence that I was fishing as effectively and efficiently as possible.

Threepeat Customer & Fishermen, Denis on the Skykomish River WA
I use jigs with the BulletBobber fishing for steelhead on the Skykomish here in Washing State. I spend 90% of my time on this one river because it has all the runs of anadromous fish with all the species of salmon. Starting in June when the river opens it will have fish in it till the following January when it closes for 5 months to leave them alone while on their spawning beds. The BulletBobber allows me to cover more water with a single cast and is a joy to work with.
It will be later this fall to get a picture to you, because I release everything before I take them out of the water for several reasons one being I'm by myself and kinda awkward trying to get a picture with my hands full with fish that big. There will be a large run of pink salmon then Coho salmon coming in behind it this year and I will have my middle daughter with me during the pink run and I'm sure she would be delighted to have her picture taken with a large fish because we've never pulled anything out of the water before. Their are so many pinks that keeping one for pictures won't hurt, in 2009 at Sunset Falls their was 100,000 pinks and 20,000 Coho trucked around the falls and that’s the only place on the Sky they get a count on pinks a couple of other places count only the Coho on the river. I'm planning on hiring a guide this year and take her(she's never been in a drift boat and would love it, all of my fishing is done from the bank). It will be late summer and early fall before we go and will be no problem to get pictures unless the guide objects to me using my own rig some of them only want numbers and you have to use their equipment. I'm sure I can find one who will let me use mine, I've never seen anyone using a BulletBobber out here but that doesn't mean no one does. More later.
Thanks for the invention because it really works.
