Agreed I have used h blocks etc but the perfect solution I found was the Atropia poles they have automatic height adjusting if a fish goes round it just sways over and the line comes off
and can even get lights to go on top

I use h block markers every time I fish and never had a single issue with them.

I use a boat extensively in the US.
After using H blocks, with the inevitable Ďfish tangle round cordí stuff, I have found that pvc conduit, weighted at bottom, is the best approach. For deep water, glue conduit screw in connectors to 2 sectors. I successfully use them in up to 19+ feet that way. Add paint or reflective tape at top to your taste, use foam to seal pipe ends.

I use both marker poles and the gps from my fish finder , obviously itís up to you if you think carp will spook off the poles , then the gps comes into its own , you can buy relatively cheap fish finders with gps now , the Garmin striker 4 is a great budget gps fish finder unit , and can tell you a lot more about the bottom from the on screen display

Cheers gents the ranges I could be fishing are well in excess of my casting capabilities, so I think permanent markers are the way to go I've just seen the Tackle box sell a couple of models of marker pole that aren't too much so I may just get one of them or try making my own.

i used to use a marker rod but that was on a venue where you don't cast a lot. have it clipped up cast it out and away you go. (would cast say 20 feet away from where i was actually fishing so you didnt keep chucking a marker on the spot youre fishing.)

if the water isnt too deep a cane is better than leaving a H block out.

They look pretty good handy for when it's dark aswell so wouldn't need to shine a torch over the spots, I wonder if the GPS on my phone would be accurate enough. Cheers mate.

You can pick up handheld GPS location devices LIKE THIS for not a lot of money nowadays compared to the past which would allow you to pinpoint spots without leaving markers out if the venue doesnít allow that (some people get away by fixing the markers so they sit a few inches under the surface so can be seen from the boat but not from the bank). The one in the links allows 16 locations to be set.

Not used this type myself but for the cost, I am tempted!

Can't afford fish finders and the like so that's out the question, but good to hear I can leave the markers out I just assumed they would tangle with the line in Case of a bite, I may try to make some of the conduit type you suggested though, thanks for the advice.
