Some people ( I think Skipjack is one ) use floats on their big rods to keep the line from rubbing on the bar. Is this what you are talking about? Skipjack has a pretty neat drawing of it. If this is what you are talking about. I'm sure he would post it here.
Sharky, thanks. Actually, I read about some Australian Shark Fisherman fishing with floats ( to suspend their baits at a certain depth ) and was wondering if anyone here uses them. I was curious, as I thought everyone pretty much bottom fished. It does seem like with all the Sharks I see from the kayak, near the surface, it might be a good idea to use a float.
I would also like info. on the floats used to keep lines from rubbing on the bars if anyone has any.
I personally don't think floats ( suspending baits) would work very well in the surf. I think that your baits would be in Mexico before you knew it. LOL. Skipjack had a post on another board about floats with a real cool drawing and detailed instructions. I'll drop him a line and see if he will post it up here for you. I'm sure he will.
