Bass Pro Shops® Weighted Foam Oval Floats
Do not buy.
Like other reviewers have said, after a few cast the float starts to slide. The spring is not that sturdy.

Poor construction, after a few casts the line comes loose bobber slides up line. I even double wrapped the line on the wire keeper. Wire keeper top and bottom and spring poorly designed. Wont buy this product again.

Weighted Foam Oval Floats
I use the largest floats when fishing for walleye and perch in shallow lakes less than 10 feet deep. This is normally from a boat on windy days. The ripple or waves on the water gives and excellent action to a jig hanging below the float just off of the bottom. The foam material that the float is made of provides excellent flotation to accomplish this better than other heavier types of materials.
I use a jig with feathers or hair to give a more natural effect. To place a tiny Gulp or Power Bait worm on the jig helps to attract and catch the desired species. A small live worm on the jig will work a little better. With a live worm there is the added work of having to catch and release Cat Fish.
Doing this while casting and retrieving with a separate fishing rod doubles the chances of catching fish. That is if you are in a place where it is legal to fish with more than one rod at a time.

Exactly what I was looking for
I was looking for a bobber with a little extra weight so that I could increase my casting distance without the used of a catapult. I found these bobbers and they are exactly what I was needing to use in Northern Pike fishing.
