    Just wanted to throw out a feeler for those members that may want to get together next month on a weekend and make some sinkers. If you can bring some lead to help out or if you have any molds please let me know what you have and post here. You can also state here when a good weekend would work out for you. We can firm up a date later on if we can get enough members interested.

    However, here's the molds I have right now.

    No-Roll - 3,4,5
    Bank Sinker - 1/8-1.5
    Egg sinker - 1/8-3
    Walking Sinker - 1/8-1.5

    My parents live about 30 mins from Ironton and my wife was from there as well. Here's a link where I live from mapquest.

    Also keep in mind that if you've never made sinkers before, this would be a good chance for anyone to learn. The wheel weights will work out just fine if anyone else can bring some as well.

    Thought you would never ask, been waiting half the summer for some no rolls. Was a very snaggy year. lol. Sounds like a great idea, I have about 30lbs of lead haging around. The first and third weekend of next month is not good at all for me though. Little thing called deer season. Just let me know when and I'll try to be there.

    I have several molds for sinkers, no rolls, bank, coin, egg, split shot, pyramid. I have lots of cleaned up lead. Just let me know. I work most weekends and have to try to get together in the evenings.

    Your not too far from me. I have some old molds and a couple that I've made. I just sold about 400 lbs of lead for scrap but can find about 20 or 30 lbs more. I'm off on the 2nd of Dec. and work every other weekend so I'll watch to see the date.

    I am interested, but I don't know if I could make it or not. Once you set a date, I can try.

    So what did you all come up with. I work weekends, but get off at 2pm and can make it out. If I don't get mandated at work.

    How does December 10 sound to everyone? Say around noon?

    Keep in mind, all members are welcome, I ask that we keep it to adults only due to the exposure to heat and molten lead.

    We could also throw some hot dogs on the grill too! Hell, maybe Tea will come and cook for us?

    How far we talking from Cincinnati? I don't need the weights ( i just ordered another 65 pounds of no rolls and eggs from ebay) but would love to meet up with some members, i could bring some steaks/walleye/beer and meet up with everybody.

    Sounds great! We'll see you there.

    We also have a surprise for everyone that attends, but I'll let S-Man tell you about it!:wink:

    Shawn called me this morning and told me the DVD's are completed, I'm gonna pick them up on monday. If you all can stand to wait 3 weeks, Ramrod says we can all watch it together on his big screen before we make the sinkers. Let him know if you plan to attend, and when I talk to him I can take you off the "send list" and send it out to those who can't make the trip first. It would be great to see with a group that appreciates catfishing.
