hello italoI love going through your answers as they cover so many topics for me. My question to you is if I am fishing with marker buoys and I am in 15 ft. of water but I have 35 ft of line on my buoy how do I stop my buoy from drifting the whole line so that it ends up off my target area. thank you in advance for all your answers and keep up the fine work that you and your crew do for us.Posted on April 15th, 2020
Hi John, thank you for your kind words. I’m glad you enjoy going through the Ask Italo forum it was indeed designed for people to be able to see my answer to questions they may also have had.
Using a floating marker can be so valuable to mark an exact area. To keep your marker on the spot you need to use a heavier weight then what comes with most markers. I would suggest going up to 2lb. Next, the barbel-weights & square markers can unravel from waves and wind. I use the Blue Fox buoy markets that float horizontally as the unravel. When the weight hits the bottom, the bottom of the marker fills with water and stands up-right. When that happens there are hooks that catch the line so it can’t unravel any longer…God bless you.
I don’t think Blue Fox make them any more (which is a shame), but I have seen them on eBay, https://www.ebay.com/i/113692883901?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=113692883901&targetid=883673194694&device=m&mktype=pla&googleloc=9012295&poi=&campaignid=6469750489&mkgroupid=90646951122&rlsatarget=aud-622027676388:pla-883673194694&abcId=1141176&merchantid=101830568&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIgcXu7tfq6AIVCbSzCh3L3g4fEAQYASABEgJbsPD_BwE .
