home made korkers
Went on a Jetty the other day for the first time, hooked up with a striper, and she was actually pulling me(in my flipflops) accross an algea slicked rock, to the point where I had to get on one knee to get some traction against the fish, before I was pulled right off the rocks. Obviously I'm new to the game. There were some a-holes who just said ''hey #$!% head, you're going to get yourself killed'' and others who actually stopped and showed me there korkers, and told me about them. One guy showed me home made ones.
These korkers were just old sneakers with 5/8'' panhead steel screws screwed into them......It's safe to say that I chose this $11 alternative to the cheapest $65 korker straps at my local shop.
My question, will these be just as effective as korkers? He said that his were, and I'm just looking to gain a little more insight so I know whether or not to be ready to start getting pulled in again. Let me know what you think......If I get a free second, I'll post a pic of my home made korkers.
