Favorite Marker Buoy

Wish-I-Were-Fishn

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.

few people have 'picked off' my markers.

These look pretty good. I like the black color.

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.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?
    • biff
      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Funny and it worked.  Say, how did you get out without Mommy and the kids?
