Wouldn't a boat cause the object to bob/weave?
No.. Not necessarily. I'm not sure why you'd think it does. The object doesn't have to be buoyant to float up to the surface, it just has to have
enough tension on the line between it and the boat tugging it along to drag it up until it's just under the surface. After that, just toss some
blankets or a net and some seaweed, or whatever you want on top of it and you have something popping out of the water. You just have to be dragging
an object with some weight to it. It's not like they were braving a storm either, there were barely even waves in the water - something weighing as
little as 5 pounds would likely do the trick. (no pun intended)
If you've ever been on medium - large boat before to go fishing then I'm sure you're aware of those torpedo-shaped things they tie to the back of the
boat which you can clearly see just under the surface of the water as you move forward. If you haven't been on a medium - large boat, then perhaps
you've been on a small one. If that's the case, you've probably noticed that even if you don't have a bobber on your lure, your lure will float to
the surface of the water if your boat is moving with a little speed. Same principle here.
