Floats FAQs

Why use a float?

A float is used to suspend a bait at a particular level in the water and to signal that a fish is taking the bait. A float can also add weight to increase casting distance. Using this information is a great starting point for float selection, because it helps you examine how a float will best meet these needs, given the conditions of the water and the species of fish you are pursuing.

What are the different types of floats?

In simplest terms, there are two types of floats. There are fixed floats, which are connected to the line and stay in that position on the line, and there are slip floats, which slide up and down on the line. The fixed float is best suited for shallower water, while the slip float is perfect for deeper water.

How to choose the best fishing float

Regardless of whether you choose to fish a slip float or a fixed float, size and buoyancy of a float are the most important issues in the selection process. If your float is too large, the fish will experience resistance when trying to take the bait, and it may drop the bait.

The resistance of a float is also affected by its profile. Very slender floats will be pulled down more easily than a wide float, and offer more sensitivity for a light bite. Also consider the weather and the condition of the water: On windy days or if there is a strong current, you will probably need a larger or more buoyant float. If the water is clear and calm, a smaller or narrower float will reduce the chances of spooking the fish.

When casting for distance is an important factor, it is recommended to select a heavier slip float. Remember, the weight of the float is not always in proportion to its size, so you may need to experiment to get the best results.
