Made some a few years ago with pvc and pool noodles,went back to 1 gallon jugs. Noodles for me were to much of a hassle. Noodles do store much easier and require less space can put 10 in a milk crate but,
1. Need a small weight or free float, then you spend a good majority of time trying to find them. Wind or fish will move them a good ways away.
2. Heavier weights will keep them in place from wind but if you catch a decent fish it will drag it down and will get hung up and gone to much combined weight to float.
A one gallon cleaned out oil jug will float a 4lb weight and at least a 30lb fish, yes the fish can take it down, momentarily. Is this the best setup probably not but works for me. I'm sure there are better ways.
