    I've made some 40 and 60 lb leaders with 3/8 to 3/4 oz. in-line weights, and various combinations of floats. The weights keep the bait near the bottom, while the floats keep hooks from getting snagged. I'll post some pics under my personal photos. I've already sold a few, and may consider marketing these, since I've never seen anything like them. I've already caught a couple of nice cats with them, and haven't had a snag yet!!

    Welcome to the BOC Ted sounds like a good invention, that helps when you can keep your bait from getting snagged on the bottom if I was you I would sell them who knows you could end up getting some good money out of the deal.

    Here are some photos of the leaders. These are 60 lb coated wire with Berkely crosslock swivels and snap swivels.
