It’s the ‘tweener period – the midsummer shift. But don’t let the term “migration” get you thinking about fish on the move and pattern-less fishing.

Northlander Will Pappenfus knows a thing or two about tracking midsummer walleyes.

Northland’s Lite-Bite Slip Bobber has pole position among all bobbers on the market. Constructed of premium balsa wood, the Lite-Bite Slip Bobber is amazingly sensitive, durable, and casts like a dream.

The slim-profile pencil version slides below the surface easier, offering less resistance to the fish. The standard oval designs better ride the waves and are easier to control in the wind.
