Do you love big bluegill?
I've used the little 1 1/2" light sticks with both slip bobbers with a connector
and the old standard red/white float (paper tape to the line on top of the bobber).
they help with the strike as the little light goes down or flips around set the hook.
I've found them helpful.
Yours in service

P.S I'll ad a diagram later time for dinner
