You are out drifting in your boat trying to pick up a fish or two. The wind is blowing you around the lake making your bait cruise the bottom like a nitro injected missle. You do not have a drift sock, guess it's time to pack it up and go home. I say never I will take a five gallon bucket with when ever I go fishing they have a ton of uses. My favorite use is to tie a rope to the handle throw it over the side of the boat and it will slow you down just like a drift sock. It you are in a bigger boat it might take a couple.
LIVE LIFE FISH HARD!
