Offshore Angler Inshore Extreme Floats
The Best Popping Corks
In my opinion these are the best popping corks on the market. The cupped face really sends a pop and splash. The titanium wire is indestructible and the brass balls and beads make great clicking sounds. The only reason we buy new ones is with the heavy use eventually the foam popper gets faded and a little beat up. My wife kills the speckled trout with these poppers!

Offshore Angler Inshore Floats
These are a must have for fishing the flats or for little kids on a boat. On the flats these are great with a live shrimp as bait. On the flats use this as a bobber or twitch it every 35 seconds after it hits the water for snook, reds, ladyfish, spanish mackerel, trout, and tarpon. These are great for little kids so that they can tell if they have a fish on because this also acts like a bobber. I use these with 10 pound Stren clear line or Ande 10 pound pink line. The leader I use is 20 pound clear leader. I have even heard that this can be used in freshwater but I haven't tried that yet.

After trying similar products, the titanium wire leader proves to be most durable and doesn't bend as easlily. Being able to use this float over the course of several trips has a cost/benefit that convinced me to place these floats exclusively in my tackle box.
The only improvement I would suggest concerns the middle plastic bead. Its knobby design sometimes causes the line to foul on long casts on very windy days.

When fishing Cedar Key for sea trout in 3 - 7' of water, I've found that the 2 1/4' oval float with a 3" white/pink scamper shrimp with 3/0, 1/4 oz red jighead really works well. Just cast it out and give it a jerk causing the weights to clack into the float, then repeat all the way to the boat.
