Disposable sinkers

Recommended Posts

(Caution these fellas will rust and drip rusty water - you've been warned - some people fully tape them or dip them in paint so this isnt a problem)

Good for spots where you lose a few.

With rebar off cuts you can get for free at any building site - a bit of wire - some tape - and zip ties - you too can have these beauties.

You will need an angle grinder with a cut off wheel aswell - or a hack saw.

I pulled on the wire and it got to 13kg without budging so I stopped pulling.

Edit  - Just tried it without the tape and a couple of zip ties and I got to 13 kgs without breaking aswell

If it works, why not, although I couldn't be bothered lol.

A bit heavy for my Gar float too :D

 

Yeah I initially started thinking about alternative weights after donating a few surf sinkers to the local reefs. We use marker floats to define the edge and losing a few bucks when they got snagged stopped making sense pretty quick.

But fishing ocean rock ledges is another place where I've wondered if donating lead is the wisest move😉

Now I see why you're doing it - makes sense to do that and should hopefully work well for you.

Yeah theres plenty of situations and rigs I wouldnt use them on - but having something thats heavy, cheap and sinks can be handy in certain scenarios.😉
