Fantastic! I hope everyone heeds the boat distancing thing. That was a key observation. That combined with chumming. If you are low on helium or just want to save your balloon, you can do it. Pass your line through a ceramic kite ring, rig terminal tackle normally. Then rubber band the ring to the main line. Attach your balloon to ring with a different line going to the balloon. When a fish bites, the rubber band will snap and the ring with your balloon will slide up to your rod tip where you can easily cut the balloon line and save the balloon.
