Sometimes the most experienced fishermen want a slow troll but have trouble achieving it due to high wind. When high currents make your boat difficult to control, drift socks come to the rescue. Whether your boat is moving too fast or the wind is blowing you off course, a well-placed drift sock can get you, and keep you, right where you want to be. Drift Control drift socks reduce extreme up-and-down boat bounce and pitching, which makes for a more stable fishing platform. And if your boat loses power, drift socks can keep your boat still until help arrives.
