Trolling sinkers

Postby Wolly Bugger » Sun Feb 26, 2017 11:15 am

Decided to use the sinker grip sinker moulds to make some trolling sinkers for kingfish. As they are aerodynamic in shape they should be perfect.

I made 8 100grams and 8 150grams.

Looks good is the loop a short length of trace wire?

Have you also considered painting and decorating the sinker so it doubles as a teaser?

Think i could get some of you? :P I usually attach 1/2 oz sinker to my snap swivel when i put a live squid on.. I just need it heay enough to sink the squid as i am trolling rather then having him swim on top.
Of course I talk to my self while fishing.. sometimes I need expert advice! :fishing:
