Favorite Marker Buoy

12 posts in this topic

Thinking about getting a couple of marker buoys. What do you guys like? I think I want some that are not highly visable so they don't attract other boats.

Cabelas has some nice ones that lay flat and stack nicely. They also dont unravel easily in the waves. Best Buoy Marker Buoys Two-Pack $9.99

They also use to sell a seagull marker. Who would ever think a little birdie would mark a fishing spot:) I have spray painted the orange markers a darker color.

I use an old duck decoy which the dog chewed on the head a bit, painted it white with 30 feet of cord and an old engine part/bearing/whatever tied on the end. Boats just whiz on by and I fish alot on Ottertail, where its just plain stupid to use a real marker.

The Fisherman's Marker is available in three different colors: white, lime green and black. They are packaged individually or in a 3-pack (one of each color selection).

2 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 1 3/8"

Another advantage is that the Fisherman's Marker can be a wonderful source of advertising or promotional incentive product since they can be engraved to reflect company logos, fishing promotions or tournaments and their sponsors.

Just a new product I wanted to share. I believe there only available thru there website.

prior to gps, I used a 10" piece of 2X4.

it is dark, hard to see beyond 50'.

few people have 'picked off' my markers.

I'll second the Fisherman's Marker. I used them a few years ago before I got my GPS. A great little marker that is difficult for others passing by to see.

I just look for all the other boats and head for them grin.gif.

Honestly, waypoint #57 is the all around best this time of year.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
