Hey fishing gets expensive, so to save money and because I'm tired of losing them I decided to make my own marker bouys.





Materials:
Pool noodle (any color)
Masonry twine
1oz. Egg sinker
3" galvanized nails

Cut noodle into 7" sections
Cut twine into 50' lengths
Wrap twine around center of noodle, I melted o groove with a lighter first.
Tie egg wieght to twine (I used 2 1oz weights)
Insert 2 nails on both ends of noodle to counter wieght the bouy so that it stops spinning when the weights hit the bottom.

I made 4 bouys for $5


Your welcome!

I have a friend who uses small clear plastic bottles for the bouys. Stealth and the freekin jetskiers dont steal them.

I like to use marker buoys as decoys since they attract fishermen like flies to horse ****. Find the fish...place the marker buoys 30 yards or so away...use them to reference your position and let everyone else go drive up ..onto..and past your buoys.
