I hear ya. Not a bite with me either. I wasn't at the canal. I did feel good to get out and make a serious attempt. I lost every bit of terminal tackle I put out there. Your welcome for the 2 pounds of lead at the bottom of canal Buzzard's Bay!

Ah, just knocking the rust off. Cheers.

I can't believe the price of lead.
$1.30 for a 6 ounce sinker?

yup, its getting out of control. i get visits from at least 8 scrap guys looking for used wheel weights and junk batteries every month. 3 years ago we had to pay to have batteries removed.

Me paps used to smelt / melt his own weights. Had a mold that think was made of soap stone: 2 halves. Lead melts at a wicked low temp. You could probably make a mold out of mortar mix, or straight portland cement.

To this day, every time we go fishing, he always has a ton of weights from years ago.
