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.
     Tight Lines.
