Roger, I was just reading your article regarding strike indicators. One question I would like to ask, as I have never used a strike indicator except for a wire strike indicator during the winter for ice fishing.
What I was wondering is when do you take the indicator off of your line? I get how it works and once you know you have a bite do you remove the indicator and get rid of the slack line made by the hanging indicator then set the hook or do you set the hook with the indicator still on your line?
Say you set the hook and remove the indicator, then do you let it fall to the ground or what as you are now fighting a fish? Will the indicator you show how to make still float if it falls into the water or will it sink with the weight of the cup holder?
