    I am looking for some 12oz disc sinkers, or something similar, must have an eyelet for use with a sinker slide. I've only found 10oz, and those are sometimes hard to find. I need something to keep my baits casted out the side of my boat in place, as the 10oz's aren't doing the trick.

    Thanks for any info.

    Should be a really easy mold to make.

    I haven't seen the river sinkers or disc sinker molds that large. About the largest I have seen is the 16 ounce bank sinker mold. Think the mold has 10, 12, 14 and 16 ounce sinkers. If your boat fishing, I would imagine there is just a very little tendency to roll, so your more after the weight. I'd recommend these molds.

    yep 10oz mold was the biggest i seen of that type. if you do any lead pouring yourself you can use cans ive made some this way they are probly at least 12oz depending on the size of cans used. cut the bottom 1/3 off a matching size can and drill a hole in the middle of the bottom to pour the lead in. notch out a spot on side of the bottom of the full can and the 1/3 can to put your swivle in try to make it a tight fit so the lead dont run out. turn the full can upside down set the 1/3 can on top with the swivle in the groove make shure the cans are centered then pour some led in the bottom of the 1/3 can to hold it in place then pour your weight. it takes quite a while to cool so dont seperate the cans for a while (min or two).
