As a kid fishing with my dad, we would oftend fish areas heavy with snags. I am talking a breakoof every cast! We use to buy these sinkers that had a disk in them that made the weight plane to surface as soon as you started reeling. I can still remember the sight of the sun reflecting off the disk, 60, 70 yards out. I have not seen these sinkers anywhere for over 40 years. A couple of years ago I tried to describe them on the board, but no one had heard of them! Well, today I was replenishing my tackel box with some item from our local "Bass Shack" and found these long sought after "Self Rising Sinkers"! I just bought them in the two ounce size, but they also have them in 1oz and 3oz and I imagin even bigger can be gotten. If you got a favorite hole that hangs you up, give these a try. I can vouch for them, as I used them throughout my childhood! I am adding a picture!
