Yes... If you don't have much wind you can also use two balloons for extra push to get your bait out there where you want it quicker. They call it the Dolly Partin rig. Lol! If I remember right, Tiny said they would also use lifesavers with the balloon sometimes when they wanted to get the balloon out somewhere and then drop the bait to the bottom. I have never used a lifesaver but I do know where I am going to try it out this year. He said they would put a lifesaver on the line before the leader and then tie the balloon to the lifesaver. Once you get your rig or bait about where you want it, stop it and hold it there until the lifesaver candy dissolves. When it does, your bait will then drop to the bottom right where a fishky will find it instead of staying on the top. Some people even use a pellet gun to shoot the balloon. Welcome to the forum!!!!!

And he said unto them... Just go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see farther... Lol!!!
