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.

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
