Floats are Items exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in Return of Them. They are crafted in the Fishing Tab and can be combined with a Sea Fishing Rod to improve the casting range and accuracy of the landing.

The Wooden Ball Bobber and the Hardened Slip Bobber can be crafted near a Tackle Receptacle, while the crafting recipes for the Jet, Crimson, Azure, Saffron, Down, and the Malbatross Quill Float are unlocked by giving their corresponding Adverts to a Tackle Receptacle.

The Hardened Rubber Bung Trinket can also be used as a Float, however, it can't be crafted.
