  • Sinkers and weights

    There are many kinds of sinkers, each used for a different purpose. Bank sinkers are use for bottom fishing especially when drifting. Many people are using round sinkers for that purpose now although they tend to be more expensive for some reason. Pyramid sinkers are use in applications like surf fishing. Inline sinkers are use for trolling. Egg sinkers are threaded onto the line as part of a bottom rig. Bullet shaped sinkers are often used in worm rigs..Tungsten sinkers are being used by bass fishermen. They are denser than lead but much more expensive.
