    Default Buoy Gear

    Hey, been reading the threads on this board for some time now and you guys have some great info. Just moved to southeast florida so Im new to this whole buoy gear fishery. Just wondering if anyone has any pix of what this gear looks like exactly, Ive never seen it before. Im from the northeast and we dont really have a fishery like this except for LL's.

    Thanks

    Jap ball then a bullet bouy then 150ft of main line to leader then hook.That is really all there is to it.Some guys fish small flyers and they all have stobes on top so they can be tracked.You make your set of around ten bouys in a row about 1/8th a mile apart.Then you run back and watch your bouys for a bite.

    I got it now, thanks guys. So Im assuming these are just left to drift freely, while the boat is just in the area to watch for hookups?
