Been on the board a week or so now and learning a lot. I consider my self a novice, running jugs/noodles and trot lines a few times a year. Finally have my own boat, and a young son who likes fishing so we are going to start getting after them. I have seen a few posts mentioing using using a shockabsorber, piece of inner tube or other material on limb line and tight lines. Can somebody elaborate on this and how they are used?
