    Lightbulb Discussion on keeping boat from bridge pylon

    Trying to be creative on keeping boat from scraping against bridge pylons. Seems bumper guards tend to move out of position do to wakes, wind, etc. I am counting on fellow slab chasers to share techniques/methods. the obvious comments are, tie up away from.
    I was thinking of strapping multiple bumpers together on the pylon, or at impact points on boat. aluminum boat. Fire away folks. I can't be the only one wondering

    Richard Gene the Fishing Machine made some portable side bumpers for his boat. The frame was shaped like a U on each side, holding a boat bumper horizontal between the sides. Frame was made of PVC so he could take them on and off easily. Look for his videos where he is fishing for Sauger next to the dam and lock walls.

    What type of boat are you fishing out of? Pretty easy fix for an alum boat.

    If you have a connection point on the pylon, you can run a rope through a 3/4 inch electric conduit make a loop and connect to the side of pipe, place over pylon and connect to boat. One on each end of boat will keep you at a distance so you can fish
