has anyone ever heard of using golfballs as sinkers??? if so how do you attatch them
I mean I don't know much about physics or the way things work...but don't golf balls float? Just a thought...
Golf balls do not float, trust me, I have lost enough of them to know!:roll_eyes:
I don't know if they are dense enough to use for a sinker though, not to mention they would roll like crazy if you were in any kind of current. Then you have the cost issue, kind of expensive sinker, even if they are old balls.
Golf balls barely sink. They just kind of bounce on the bottom. I used to snorkle and get hundreds from local courses. They do have to sink or they couldn't sell as many.:lol: :lol:
You can buy ones that float, but normally they sink. Just drill a small hold and use em I guess. Who knows.
I don`t know I have used old spark plug though:lol:
lol wouldnt weights be cheaper/? lol pastor e i used spark plugs before. boy those were the days
I found 4 of them on the bottom of the river while diving last week. They definately don't float but I don't think they would be good sinkers. Some folks could really cast one with a good driver but I'd be better off throwing it.
Why would you even consider using a golf ball for weight? JUst curious.
i think it would work but i would ant try it:roll_eyes:
i dont relly think it would work all that well it would roll bonce if the bottem is rock maby even scare the fish away so i would say stay away from golf balls and stick with lead
So you were shooking the fish to death ha. :big_smile: Bet they got a charge out of that.
Yeah... why so intrested in using a golfball?
Same here. Gave up cow pasture pool a couple of years ago.
You'd have to figure some type of connector like setting an eye screw into it. Still, the bouyancy of the golfball make it a lot less dense than sinkers. How about spark Plugs? Historically they've been used a lot more than golf balls.
A sinker that won't snag.....
A 300 yard cast.....
Not getting a penalty for hitting it into the water......
Golf and Fishing.....
Sounds like more work than it's worth to me. Fishing is supposed to be fun not work.
