I primarily drift fish and run a multitude of socks on my 19' skeeter. I match my socks with my speed. I can fish in up to 17mph winds and stay at .5mph. I have a red 60" Linde, (2) 54" blue linde, 36" and 30" yellow amazon. I use them all in different combinations to keep me below .5mph....get the tethers with the float, sock will sink without the float if it comes unattached and be gone gone. I get all mine on amazon for cheap

I used to use two 5 gal buckets. I like the socks better when it comes time to hoist them into the boat.

Those harness that Prime showed are great. With the float on, if you hang a big cat and he's fighting towards the sock, you just unhook and drift away. Then after you caught it, go back and re-hook. Had a buddy get hung up in the sock one time, ever sense we use those harness. I made my own, easy to make.

I just bought one toat Bass Pro Shops to replace one of my Cabela's 42" ones I lost. I bought a 48". They had a 54" that wasn't much more. It I thought it would be best not to be too different from my other one. I didn't want to get unbalanced when I use two out the side.

Anyone found any larger socks than the 78" Cabelas socks?

We have 8 of the 78" socks from Cabelas (pro series) and like them. But, on some days i'd like a bigger one.

This might be a dumb question, but is a 60" socks the size of the opening or is it the length of the sock?

I'd imagine throwing 8 out at once would put the breaks on pretty hard. Must not be kidding when they say Twonk can get windy. roflmao
