    I assume that the principle here is that it ties off like a limb or setline and you use the float to position the bait farther down stream?

    I might use the hardware but the boat thing sure is weird to me . Its one of those things that will collect dust . I only gave 3 bucks each so no great loss . I have some weird fishing stuff I have collected over the years and these will be part of the collection .

    What they are is a "Jug line" type set up. They can free float where jugging is legal. And they can be connected to limb or dock ext where jugging is NOT legal actting as a limb line. Hints the name - Floating limb line - meaning it can be used as free float or limb line.

    If anything else I will use the as markers ... my own little boat markers ..lol .
    The only cool thing about them is the glow stick attachment . I may mess with one of them , but I might win the lottery also:wink:

    Ya I don't know why they made the float in the shape of a little boat. LOL Heck man set one out and see how it works. I mean what do you have to lose,Ok maybe your little boat.

    The little boat thing is kind of like a moped, I'm sure it's fun to play with, but I don't really want my friends to see me with it :wink::smile2:
