Thought I would share this with you BOC brothers, fishing for cats below dams or steam plants you tend to loose alot of sinkers and if you use 3 to 5 ounce then they can get costley to keep replacing. I went to Bass Pro and purchased a melting pot and a sinker mold that will make 2,3,4, & 5 ounce bank sinkers. I went to a tire store that a friend of mine owns and he gave me a five gallon bucket of used lead wieghts that are used for tire balancing. I melt those down pour into my mold and Wah-Lah, bank sinkers. Very easy to do and a big money saver!
