Re: Fishing floats, traps, and nets

Hi steve

One question I still don't understand - Some of these floats have to be marking nets due to the water depth. Why don't these nets have intermediate floats along their length? Do they truly only have surface floats at either end?
Where you have a number of floats is because the combination of depth and current effecting the down line. Pass the last float - normally with the flag. I have had 5 @ 6 inch floats held under water for 2 weeks due to tidal currents. What gear is on the other end (lines, traps or nets is not relevant to a cruiser).
