I'm putting in an order for sinkers and I was just curious how much yall go through.
I used quickcrete with styrofoam cups and treble hooks. It measured out a little over 9 ounces for a coffee cup size cup. Half cup around 5 ounces.Not many anymore. I use just about anything heavy that sinks for a sinker. I switched to a three way rig and i think it gets snagged alot less frequently than the Carolina rig. Im gonna try concrete in a muffin pan with some eye screws sticking out to make my own. Anyone know if i should use cupcake liners or spray it down with cooking spray first!?
Defintely. I feel like the bigger flatheads especially ones over 50 or 60lbs got that big because theyre smarter than the average fish.I have one of them big cheap brass swivels with a bunch of heavy duty rubber bands on it and I will use a big rock and put the bands all around it. Sometimes it works good sometimes not. Its more of just a backup incase I run outta lead.
I was looking for a lead alternative because I feel like it has a smell to it and I know if I smell it then a flathead surely can smell it and my thought was the smell could turn a big flathead thats been around awhile, away from my bait. Now like I said thats just my thought, I know guys catch big flatheads while using lead.
But they get big for a reason, they're smart...and of course CPR
