Anyone have any idea how to check the depth of the water your fishing in? :?
Specially when fishing off a jetty/bridge/dam

use a weight, one stopper knot of rubberband on the line over the float and tie a weight on the end of line. go on moving the stopper knot on your line. When the float becoms visible, measure the distance between stopper knot and the weight. that is the depth of that place.

Regards,

Ali.

you can buy a special weight that has a strip of cork that you can hook into and as described you just keep moving the float till its right for you or you can just pinch your biggest lead usually a swanshot directly onto the bend of your hook and follow a similar proceedure.....doug :shock:
