Postby savage1978 » Tue Sep 01, 2015 11:31 am

Hey there everyone,

Ive just started to venture out offshore and having trouble trying to get my plastics to the bottom as im drifting to quick. Can anyone tell me a way that i can slow my drift down so i can maximise my bottom time when using soft plsstics??

Cheers

drogue or drift chute is what you need, most boat shops/tackle stores have them.
The bigger it is the more it will slow your drifts, If you decide to get one get one suited for a small tinny rather than a kayak.

There's two types - one that looks like and ice-cream cone with the bottom point cut off or one that looks more like a square parachute, you want the square style as they work far better than the cone style ones.

Use a drogue as suggested
Also can use a collapsible bucket or even normal fishing bucket if you don't want to spend the money.
I've attached a float to my drogue to keep it just sub surface and I can detach it quickly if I have to and the float will enable me to get it back

Use heavier jig heads but that affects the action :?:
