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.

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.

      Cannons a go good 3 inches where I check and two guys out 100 yards

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
