Home made depth finder
« on: Mar 06, 2005, 10:56 PM »
For those without a vex and wanting to know the rough depths, here is a neat idea...

If you have an old baitcast rod and reel, you can make a home made depth finder.

1. Cut the rod down to about 2 feet.
2. mount an eye at the end. Does not have to be fancy just something to position the line.
3. Add different colored braided or nylon lines at 10 foot and/or 5 foot increments. Use a blood knot between lines.
4. Tie a heavy weight to the end.

I have this setup and it works great for finding the rough depths.

Confidence catches fish! The rest of it is just there to keep us busy.
