Urban Fishing Tip: Sliding Weights vs. Boat Traffic
Clip and Weight
The other day while out catfishing I watched in horror as my braided line got picked up by a passing boat prop. My spool was dumping line so fast that by the time I got to the rod I had been cut off and lost close to 100 yards of 80 pound braid. Had I remembered this trick when I casted out I could have easily avoided the whole scenario. This tip is most effective when fishing canals, rivers, lakes or surf that is plagued by passing boats. It uses a second sliding weight to pin the line to the bottom of the waterway. Keeping your line off the surface, and out of harms way. I made up this quick video to explain the concept a little better.
