So with spoonbill season coming up, My buddy is starting to get his gear altogether. We were walking through bass pro shop, when we came upon the 8 oz lead sinkers used for snagging. A bargin at 6 BUCKS a piece. my buddy told me that he lost 10 of the weights last year. So instead of buying more weights, i told him to buy this instead.

All it took was warming up the production pot, and some WW's and it 20 minutes he had more weights than he would ever need in a season. Best part, i get to keep the mold. It is in nice 6 and 8 oz sizes, and are small enough to fit in my pot really well. So now i have about 30 of thise sinkers in a bucket now. i am going to pick up a load of WW's at the tire shop and add to that bucket tomorrow.

Very cool dude. Those look like some really professional looking sinkers. Any pics of the finished product?

Pics to come soon primal. my grandfather just gave me his egg shaped sinker molds. i'll post pics later tonight of the big sinkers. I need to get some tin solder to help with the mold fill out, but these are sinkers that are just going to drag the bottom of the lake.
