    When selecting a bobber I've found that matching the color of it to the rod is more important than the brand.

    It is a death star, if you can throw it you can throw any damn thing you wish.

    In the Kirkland old days you would have found any color bobber you wanted at Ernst or PayLess. Neither store exists now.

    I think that any of them would put the balance of catching in your favor..

    Doesn't BIC make thingamabobbers? I know they make everything else I lose the most of, figured they made thingamabobbers too.

    What happens in June? Are you just limiting yourself to fishing for hatchery fish? Even if you are, I'm pretty sure nearly every terminal fishery that closed this past week has a sizable stretch still open until Feb. 15th. Not to mention the fact that there are a ton of other rivers open outside Puget Sound. For a lot of people the season has just barely begun...and they don't live in Forks or Aberdeen.
