Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I've been using a 1/2 diameter red/white bobber with a florescent green bead on the top side since 2001. I am about out of them and can't find them anywhere[this includes the internet]. The mom/pop tackle store where I bought them has gone out of business in Mooresville, IN.

Does anyone know where I can purchase these little floats? They do a great job when casting toward the shoreline and using a Popeye jig tipped with a bee moth.

Thanks in advance.

If they are called green caps , I got a couple dozen boxes of em . 12 per box I think I'll post a pic and you can see if they are the same ones. They were made by the American Bobber company outta Kansas somewere I believe. If ya want mine I can sell em cause I only use weighted small bobbers now. 

Plastilte corp.  402-453-7500  ask for rick or carol in sales.....or you can buy mine .

That is very similar to what I use[and may, in fact be the very same bobber]. Can you get me an accurate width, and or heightof the bobber that you have posted. If they are the same, how much do you want for them?

THEY ARE 3/4 " IN DIAMETER IF YA WANT EM $5 A BOX OF 12 DELIVERED. Or better yet just get em in bulk from the Makers at Plastilite Corporation .......... If you want em though ya gotta take em all cause it wouldn't be economical to mail one box. It would probably be cheaper to order direct like I did for the last 15 years. Same deal the place I used to buy em quit handling fishing stuff and the other place I could get em went outta business so that's how I wound up getting em from the factory myself..........

thanks David for your response. Mine are 1/2 inch and 5/8 inch diameter. 

I'll call the manufacturer and order some. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the name of the company and phone number.

We have a new bait/tackle store north of Cataract Lake and I will put him onto them also. 

No problemo Reggie and glad I could help a fellow gill man .......

These are the last 5 boxes of these I have. I forgot and sold a bunch last year and wasn't going to reorder......
