    I used balloons for a long time but they were always poping.A much better idea everyone around here uses is 1/2 of a water noodle.This may not work for you but it may be worth a try.I to like floating baits in front of jams.

    I also use the swim noodles. They have a skinny one and one that is twice as thick. I use the fat one in 12" sections and have had great success with them.
