    Is there any sinking braided lines out there? I fish with bobbers in a lake and if it floats and the wind blows the bobbers go everywhere. Any help would be appreciated. :big_smile: Thanks

    I dont think so i have the same problem and all you can do is go with a lighter line or just fight the wind like i do when i use corks

    Interesting problem.Unfortunately braids are generally made of materials that are naturally bouyant.I shouldnt say unfortunatley.Fishing with floats on Santee among the stumps and trees in shallow water if you use mono it sinks.When you go to reel in or set the hook you must pull that sunken line in so to speak and in the process your cork goes under ,and it or the line get snagged quite often.Braid solves that problem nicely and gives you direct contact for reeling in or hook setting.It does blow around however so one advantage can become a disadvantage due to conditions.I would prefer it to float for that direct line action without having to haul a lot of line underwater when setting the hook and keeping the cork up on the surface when reeling in among stumps or snags.:smile2::big_smile:
