At a Glance: Drift Socks and Trolling Bags
Drift Socks and trolling bags both work to help slow a boat in rough or unstable waters. Trolling bags are designed to withstand trolling through water, while drift bags are only meant to be used while drifting with no power or motor. The drift socks are constructed out of nylon material and utilize nylon straps. Trolling bags are made from a heavier, vinyl-coated material to withstand and slow down trolling speeds, as well as provide the necessary balance and stabilization needed on rougher water.
Brands of drift socks and trolling bags available at FishUSA include Amish Outfitters and Drift Control.
