    Hey fellow anglers. Here to meet people, gain and share knowledge. First ? thinking of putting a line between two trees is it better to have a weight at both ends or in the mid?

    Harley,

    Welcome to the Boc.

    Now for your question:

    Are you talking about using a trot line? If so, I use a weight on each end, and depending on the length of the line, I might add a weight to the middle. This kinda depends on, if the area your talking about has a lot of Boat traffic.

    You certainly don't want your line so shallow that a boat motor would hit it.

    Tell us more about what your trying to do, and we can be of better assistance to you..

    Welcome to the BOC,
    I agree with "bud1110" and you might be able to find more answers in the library and the articles sections.

    Again welcome,
