    Need some help,sinker slides being cut by braid and snaps are too long,any suggestion?
  2. Saltwater Species
    Anyone know what they're called? I liike to use cannon ball sinkers when drifting for fluke, but I was thinking that instead of just a sinker on the bottom & a bucktail up above, why not add a hook to the sinker & increase my odds or get some doubles? I've seen people with the double eyed...
  3. Hudson River
    hello all! I fish from shore almost exclusively and have been using the fish finder rigs for bloods for years... recently I have been having some issues with tangles where the swivel meets the main line/leader/fishfinder with the leader twisted around the main line preventing the system to...
  4. Trolling for Stripers
    For example ~ when using a 3 oz. bucktail, and you want to run at a depth of 20 feet, when adding an inline sinker do you take in account the 3 oz. lure? example ~ to get to 10 oz., should I use a 7 oz. sinker with a 3 oz. lure? I am using 30 lb. mono, 30 ft. long leader.
  5. Upper Hudson River Striper Club
    I know most of us use the same bottom rigs, but does anyone have a preference for how long the dropper is for the sinker. I usually tie a bunch up with 6lb test line and usually go from 12 to 18 inches and 3 to 4 oz. I spoke with a guy yesterday who catches a lot of fish and he attaches the...

    Hey all.I read a post awhile back somewhere on here and can't "search"It for the life of me.I've been usin sinker slides and chunks from a spiked rod from shore, and been having great success with keepers being caught on almost every outing.The post I am inquiring about suggests it's better...

    Hi, I'm with Salamander Sinkers and we make a sinker for the Carolina Rig that is non lead, snag resistant and adjustable weight. Visit us at We have never met a bass that we didn't like or could't catch. john
  8. Tackle Evaluation & Product review
    I am not sure if I invented a new gizmo. If I did, and if it has a demand, then I would create a webpage on my website showing how to make and use this. If I just showed a photo most guys would figure it out but others like a few tips so this would take a little time for me to set up. I'd also...
  9. Boating Beginners
    Easy question - I've read about wire & leadcore to get down deep to troll tube & worm rigs, but I don't see why you wouldn't just use an egg sinker or 2 a few feet up the leader from the tube. Seems to me the weight would get the rig down and it would be much easier than dealing with the cost &...

    I need to know how lake sinker or silverwoods is doing for this weekend. Can someone help me out?
  11. Hudson River
    I was gonna start making my own bank sinkers and was wondering who makes a good mold
  12. Plugs and Plug Building
    Is this a bad idea? Rather than the pin, I put some hooks into my egg sinker mold. If I painted them and tied on bucktail or feather, am I wasting time trying to catch fish with them?

    Quik-Slide sinker slides Don't you hate having to cut your line and re-tie just to put a sinker slide on? I saw these yesterday at the Providence fishing show and picked up a couple packs. Kinda pricey at $2.99 for a 3 pack, but slick as snot. They do have a nice positive click when closed...

    I was at the CT river, in chicopee. There was a guy getting ready for the Striper run. He said that "If you use trolling sinkers with your lures. You can cast farther (where the fish are) and get more/bigger fish". Any truth to this? From what I saw. He was casting bomber's with a 3/4...

    Any thoughts opinions out there regarding using a sliding sinker/fishfinder rig vs. a rig with the weight tied to the line for using bait from the shore? I fish the Hudson River spring run, bloods, chunk herring, hopefully live herring this year. Thanks in advance for the feedback!
