Alright, someone tell me everything you know about drift socks :smile2:. I'm thinking about changing the way my boat is rigged, when I get around to flooring it among other things, but I also want to put a drift master type rack on the back instead of rod holders along the side. I was thinking about this and how I currently anchor my boat. Usually I put down an anchor in the front and let out a bunch of line then do the same thing in the back then pull the boat to center and tie off. When I got to thinking about it, I wondered if casting out the back with several lines would get tangled on the anchor rope and that brought me to the idea of a drift sock. It wouldn't be out as far and probably wouldn't have a tangling problem. So my question is, would it only work if there was current? Can you do this if there is little or no current (like on a lake)? The main idea is to keep the boat from swinging a bunch and picking the sinkers off the bottom and all that. Do you guys use a drift sock for this purpose or is it only for drift fishing?
