Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Took my grand daughter fishing Saturday and learned the hard way to keep the stake out poles on a leash. She dropped hers and its gone now. So here is my answer. Hopefully someone here will find it useful.

Ingrediants are:

10" of pool noodle

12" of 1" PVC pipe

1 clip...can be a gate clip

550 cord or similar....as long as you want it to be

heavy thread.....i used some of the core threads form the 550

You will also need a bungee loop that has the ball on the end. 

 

This float is made so you can adjust the depth you need with one line.  The other line is threaded through the anchor trolley and attaches to the kayak.  I slip mine over a point on my deck organizer so I can slip it off when I want to chase a fish or one of the kids.

Step 1

Drill a hole through the pipe at both ends so that you will have 4 holes.  I used a 3/8" Bit.

Step 2

 

Attach Bungee to pipe by threading through one hole and pulling the ball through the loop.

Step 3

Cut the anchor line to the legenth you like. You can tie it on or sew and whip a loop in the end like shown. The anchor line goes to the opposite end from the bungee.  I wish I had made the loop and attached it like I did the bungee but my ADHD kicked in.  I'll fix it another day.

 

Step 4.

Attach the clip to the other end of the line. 

 

Step 5

If you have not already done so, slip the noodle on and attach the kayak teather/line.  I made my loops before I attached them to the pipe Same end ad the bungee.  Now I can take it off without cutting it. Now im thinkin!

 

 

 

Step 6.

 

Just pull the anchor line up to the bungee end of the noodle and start warping it around.  To keep the line from uncoiling I pass the clip under the the line near the end and pull the bungee ball over the wrapping and the end of the pvc pipe.

 

When you are ready to use it, thread the teather through the loop in the anchor trolley, and attach to your yak.  Than pull the bungee loose and pull off the amount of anchor line you need and replace the bungee to hold the rest inplace. Clip onto your anchor or pole and you are ready to go....er...stay put...you get the point.

 

Enjoy
