Drift control tournament series?

4 posts in this topic

I was thinking about buying a tournament drift sock, made by Drift Control. I think it would be pretty helpful to have the option of opening and closing the hole at the end, thus letting you control the speed of the drift better. Anybody out there used one? Know anything about them?

Thanks

I have used the drift control and Cabelas Advanced Angler brand. I like the Cabelas one much better. The Cabelas sock seems to not get tangled up as much and open easier than the drift control one. The open close option is nice, but I baught 3 different size Cabelas ones for different wind speeds/applications. For me the drift control sock was always getting tangled up or turned inside out making it a pain to use in the high wind and big waves. Cabelas sock seems to be made of thicker material and holds its shape. I would check them out also.

Just my 2 cents,

Matt

I have an Advanced Angler (42" I believe" and a Drift control (54" I believe) and both seem to be pretty good but IMO the Drift control is a better unit. I usually use both at the same time and have never tangles either and if they are set out correctly you won't have issues with them opening.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
