There are many panfishing techniques that are easy to learn, and all of
them are rather effective. That is what is so great about panfishing.
Regardless of the method that you use, you are likely to find some
success. The key is to know what type of panfish you are looking for and
knowing where to find them. Proper bait choice is also a vital part of
panfishing, though most panfish will strike at anything edible that
resembles their natural food choices of worms, insects and so on.
If you are fishing for crappie, bream, sunfish, or bluegill type
panfish, then bobber fishing is about as effective as anything. The key
is to use a small bobber as
opposed to a large one. Large bobbers are easier to see at a distance,
but they are also more visible to the panfish. A smaller bobber will
draw more action. Place your hook down about two feet below the bobber,
and use a #6 hook. If you are fishing for smaller bream then use a
smaller hook. This panfishing technique is very easy, but you should
know that patience is the key. If you do not get a bite in a few
minutes, move on to another location.
