Fishing float made from a tennis ball. Saw some guys using them on a pier in Oceanside, CA several years ago. Made one and used it here in North Texas. Plan to try it out in saltwater once I get to the coast. "Tennis Ball Fishing Float"

There is a product called " the Launcher " avaiable at Academy. It is a big lead wieghted float that you can can a mile. check it out. There is also a " lemon rig " that uses a lemon juice bottle. This works for jetty fishing with live bait. You can rig it to fish 12 feet deep ( or more if you have a long rod) and still be able to cast it. google it
agree texcajun - Used the Launcher this morning to hook-up on small Stripers at Denison Dam's tailrace. Fished from the bank when the morning bite was on. Click-on link for details. Launcher worked great for adding distance to a cast and doubled as a popping cork/attractor to get the schoolies to bite (just like fishing for specks).
Been awhile but did get some practice casting a new Surf Casting Rod using the Tennis Ball Fishing Float... Fun stuff! Today's Video. Good to know the float can do double duty as a practice casting weight!
Started with a multi-fishing fly rig under a Launcher Float, then replaced it with a sinker, tghen switched to the Tennis Ball Fishing Float. Only one fish but did have some good results with distance using the float! Fun stuff! Link.
