Is there a bobber stop made that doesn't slip on the line or catch in the reel when letting line out.  Ideas? Thanks

I'm a big slip-bobber fan. I've tried em all, never found a better stop than string (one that lasts anyway), but still searching. Good post!

+1 tie it tight buy leave some 'tags" on it long enough to keep tighting them as you move it but short enough to still slip through the guides.
 

Good Luck and Good Fishin'

I have found the little plastic wishbone things are the best for it not moving but they are a pain to work with.

Use 2 right next to (or on top of) each other and clip the loose strings down real small.  That seems to help a lot.

+1 on the thin rubberband.  can add one anytime without removing jig.  just a quick overhand granny.  Works better on fireline etc. for staying put.  only moves with fish on but worth it.  They do deteriorate but still so easy to replace.

that does sound a hell of a lot easier than stringing a new bobber stop all the way up your line. i'll have to try it!

I use a rubberband as well but don't tie a granny knot...  not sure of what the knot is called but after you place the rubber band it will not move. Once you need to move it, all you do is pull the rubber band out and the knot pulls straight out. 

I just had it typed out how to make the knot but it was too confusing to write out over the net...

One can use a piece of thin rubber band and tie an overhand knot in the rubber band around the line and trim to size, this may tend to slide (maybe too much with superline) and is adjustable.

Like I think Heavy was describing, another way is where you want the bobber stop tie a simple loop slip knot in your line and insert a small piece of thin rubber band in the loop before you tighten and trim rubber band to size if necessary. Probably not real adjustable but should not move and simple enough to remove and replace. Your line may cut through the rubber band on a large fish or after several fish or snag or band removal, but simple enough to replace. The loop slip knot should be tied to slip out when the band is removed.

I have heard the rubber bands like are used on teeth braces are better than plain old latex bands, but I have never tried the braces kind.

i second the rubber band.. used to try to go all out with the little ball that you feed your line through, but had a problem with it sliding when reeling in..

a rubber band and one of those little yellow foam stick bobbers (parden my "technical termonolgy") Best bobber set up!

Is it possible (spinning) to reel the stop in the spool without dicking things up?

Yes, just trim the strings maybe 3/16 to 1/4 long. It'll goober up on occasion, but not too often. I even use them with little Daiwa spincast ice-fishing rigs.
