Rated 3 out of 5 by BuckeyeBass Just Ok.. I purchase 8 of these for trips to Canada. All 8 leaked of the course of 2 years. I had to re-seal and re-paint more than once. Love the orange color, but they do fade. They stayed put in the wind and rain, so I'll give them a 3.5 rating. April 3, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by MikeyMM Another use I actually bought this to protect from losing an anchor. After losing 1 anchor, i removed the lead weight and tied the end of the rope with the anchor line. It hasnt happened yet, but If my anchor ever goes in again, i can get it from the float. September 22, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by 1morelostfish2011 Not happy so far I've used buoys for the last 20 years and on my last trip I tossed one over in 16 ft and marked my gps waypoint after 2 hrs fishing I retrieved buoy and checked gps the buoy was 30 ft from original posisition and twice the amount of string was out not to good May 30, 2012

A:i guess you can leave them over night, but probably not the best idea. no telling who could get caught up in them. i wind mine up after im done fishing.
A:You could leave them overnight, but I see a few potential issues:
1) some one takes them
2) some one fishes your 'honey hole'
3) some one runs them over w/ boat
If you want to semi-permanently mark a spot, maybe a milk jug w/ a brick etc would be a better option.
A:You want to take them with you. If left overnight you risk losing them, another boat wrapping them in thier prop-wildlife getting caught in them etc.
Go ahead and mark the spot you have found in your GPS if you have them.
If you don't have a GPS-use a notepad to take notes. Choose a landmark close to the spot and make your notes- Like 100 yards off the big rock-also note the water level as it can change.
By the way-Bass Pro has very reasonable hand held GPS units that come in handy!!
