After recently joining the BOC and seeing all the recomendations to drift I decided to give it a serious try with good results right off. Then I bought some 3/8" fiber core rope and started making my own snagless sinkers. While in the process a thought came to me. Why not cut the rope a little longer than needed to contain the proper amount of weight, then stuff a cotton ball or two inside before sealing the end. Then they could be stored inside a ziploc bag with a fish oil or shad scent that would go with my cut bait. They could then do double duty as weights and increase the scent trail left by my rigs. I'm sure someone has thought of this before I did and give it a try. I just need to find a good scent and do a little field testing myself. Any thoughts or comments?
