    What kind of line would you use and I guess you would just have to drop the line. LOL.

    It's actually suppose to be a fabric weight, but I don't know why it has the hole in it, if that'a what it's for in reality.

    I do know the big river system guys ( Mississippi, Ohio, Ottawa, Missouri, Red, etc.) commonly use 12-16 and even up to 20 Oz weights for holding bait down in deep fast water. Heck, just reeeling that empty rig is is a chore....:lol:

    Just judging from the size, I'd guess that those weigh about 2# each. Not only do I have sinkers that size, I have a mold to make them. When the current was bad, I used them in the Pacific, fishing off the Vandenberg AFB coast, launching out of San Louis Obisbo and running 17 miles across the bay. Now I use them for anchors for my anchored juglines. I don't use the anchored ones nearly as much as the freefloating jugs; for them I use a 16p or 20p nail for a weight.

    OK, Danny, go hit a GB and stop killing my threads. Joking.

    The sinker/material weight shown is 2#'s. I weighed it at work. Jeff thought it weighed more than that, but hey I was right for once. LOL. :crazy:
