I have lost a couple of larger bobbers when fishing for catfish on the Ohio River. Even when I bought them at a flea market they still cost $3 each. Once the line breaks on a snag that bobber is gone forever with the current. So a friend of mine show me a way to make up my own bobber that cost next to nothing.
The biggest concern is how much current you plan on fishing in with the boober. A large bobber can be made to handle 5-6 ounces in sinkers to hold the line steady. A smaller one 3-5 ounces will do a good job for you. For a large bobber use a 20 ounce plastic soft drink bottle. A smaller one use either an 8 or 12 ounce plastic juce bottle. Stuff the bottle with styrofoam pieces. One source I use is the styrofoam take out coffee cups. Just cut them up and stuff in the bottle until filled. Screw a very small eyelet screw into the top of the bottle cap. Put some glue in the cap by the screw and the inside of the cap then tighten it to the bottle.
The final touch is paint the bottom half of the bottle with a florescence paint. Whatever color you like just so you can spot the bober after a long cast. The bobber will NOT cast as far as a streamline bobber, but will do a good job of showing a bite.
