I have a 20' bass boat but my dad has a 20' pontoon. I realize that 60"-70" socks might be over kill for a Bass boat but I don't want to have to buy 2 socks for each boat.

I got a big yellow one off eBay it was cheap and it is built out of heavy duty stuff. Don't know the name but you can't miss them bright yellow with red straps.

2 is always good... Just go at least one size bigger cause you can always choke em up tighter to the boat... cheers

I run 2 of the cabelas pro series on my 17 foot deep v aluminum g3 and they work great. The cabelas pro series store in a smaller area than the big yellow ones we did have. I also have ropes with a float from academy tied to them. I think that that it helps keep them straight and high in the water column.

The cheap Acadamy drift socks work great. I have one from Cabelas and two from Academy. I also bought a two pack of floats from Academy to add to the socks to keep them at the water's surface.
