Trolling Sinkers

I poured up a bunch of sinkers today. I really should charge more because working with lead isn’t pleasant, there is constant splatter and fumes. It takes a lot of lead for these 2 ounce sinkers, which is another chore, melting the lead down into workable bars. Then I have the paint fumes too.

If I wasn’t selling these sinkers I wouldn’t even need to pour any because my slip-sinker bottom bouncer is snagless and a few will last for years.

I use the clip-on sinkers on the river as well as Lake Erie but these too seem to last for years and I only need a few.
