species of fish. The two most common rigs are the Bobber and
Crappie. Bobber rigs are suitable for catching Bluegills and are
best for beginners.

that come in different sizes, weights, and shapes. The current
speed and the water depth would determine the weight of the
sinkers you will need for your fishing trip.

purpose is to let you know when a fish bites your bait. The
commonly used bobbers are pencil, slip bobbers and buttons. They

the bobber back to you if it were too light and would scare the
fishes off when it is too big.

tangling up the line. Swivels are affordable and come in
different sizes to fit the bait and hooks you use.
Other supplies are the tackle box and your bait. The bait would
vary depending on the kind of fishing you wish to perform.

fishing trip affordably and safely.
