Recently I went salmon fishing at the Wachusett Reservoir with my friend Craig. Fall is when salmon swim towards and then up tributaries to lay eggs, bringing them closer to shore. They aren't as interested in eating as spawning, but nightcrawlers are difficult to resist. Getting the worms to them topwater can be an issue however. That is why I went looking for heavy casting bobbers. They were not easy to find without lead. So I made my own. These custom casting slip bobbers are made using 3/4oz wooden eggs, stainless steel screw eyes, and are sealed with marine spar varnish. They should be effective against any topwater fish like salmon in the fall or bass in the summer.
