    Right before I left RamRod told me that we melted and poured over 300 pounds of lead that day. They had been working for a couple hours before the rest of us got there cause Doughboy had to leave early for work and wanted to get some time in before he had to leave. I think we melted lead for 8 or more hours. 300 might be a low estimate cause I took a box with 45 or 50 lbs home and it didn't even make a noticeable dent in the final pile lol.

    I ended up with all the ones that was left after everybody got theirs. I weighed them after I finished sorting them. It came to 120 pounds. Spent about 4 hours sorting all of them. Thanks again Ramrod for having us over and sharing your equipment.

    Did you guys make any good size sinkers? Like from 4oz or heavier? How much money does it save making your own?

    i wasnt there Boss but making your own saves tons of money in the long run if you use big sizes and lose them a lot, as well as having them on-hand whenever you need them. big sinkers can be hard to find during the summer. we just had a little get together here in Dayton and made a bunch, made enough 3-5oz sinkers to last me about 3 years in addition to what everyone else took home.

    I think the most weight into those flat tear-drop shaped no roll sinkers 3 to 5 OZ. Then a ton of eggs up to 3 or 4 OZ. then a bunch of no-snag sinkers for drift fishing. Any thing over 3 ounces will cost you 75 cents up to a dollar each. So its easy to eat up a fishing budget if you have to buy them.

    Well you won't need any sinkers for awhile.
