    I bought a spool of 1/8 inch lead wire at the flea market,many years ago.It runs 18 inches to the ounce on weight.It can be curled,twisted,bent,cut and shaped into just about anything.Very small split shot to large breakaway sinkers,it works great.I always carry a rolled up piece when fishing.It often comes in handy.Any one else use this?peewee-williams

    No, but back when I was growing up, we occasionally used lead-core line for trolling in deep water. (We had a dugout Alumacraft powered by a wooly mammoth swimming and pulling the dugout. :rolleyes: )

    I see that you used that "new fangled stuff"for line.I guess that I still be a primitive kinda fisherman,when I occasionally get to be one.As for your motor,it has got to be a brush and grass hog.I bet it produces a lot of gas.(methane?)peewee-williams
