flourocarbon and slip bobbers

I recently started using floro this year. I started using a slip bobber knots while vertical jigging, as a depth cheater. Whenever I catch a fish tho, the slip knot slides up the line. Then I have to start over on depth again. Never had this problem with mono. Anyone have any tips?

"    With the recent comments on perch, I looked up the record on yellow perch..... it was set in New Jersey in May 1865 at 4 # 3 oz.  That's a lot older than the 65 year old BG record that Slip Sinker had asked about a while back."

"I like to partially cut the head at the gills and then hook a pin min through body and dead stick. For some reason the perch at my lake don't like them very lively. Ya'll use shiners for perch huh?"

"That was actually some kind of bait fish in the lake that got snagged. Some people tip them in the winter with minnies but it messes up the action of the bait."

"Hey John, this is the vibe lure. They work great both jigged vertically and casted as well. We were casting them shallow, for pre spawn walleys. Also work really well for crappie."
