    Regarding the tide changing from outgoing to incoming if the bugs are running fairly steady before the change stick around a bit, because everything
    that went past you on the outgoing will be coming back at you as the tide picks up incoming. I've done well in the past several times after the tide
    change, slack tide can be crazy time because they'll be coming from all directions

    They have poly line called blue steel which floats. It doesn’t have any real stretch so it’s not great for hurky-jerky situations but it is inexpensive. Used it a lot in Hawaii for deep water.

    you do not want to use floating rope, because you may have to drop your anchor rope into the water fast so you can move when a barge comes. It will get caught up in the barges prop.
