New Marker Buoys

Ray's picture

By Ray - Posted on 09 September 2009

I have been working on making marker buoys that you could not see from across the lake in an attempt to cut down on the temptation for others to share my fishing spots. I finally have them perfected. I used a couple 2 inch natural cork floats, a cheap disposable ink pen, a couple 1/4 ounce bullet weights, kite string and a 1 ounce weight. These work great. The bullet weights prevent the marker from rolling off after the weight hits bottom and the buoy is small enough it is very tough to see from any distance.
