Originally designed for Texas rigging soft plastics they can be used for freshwater species such as Bass, or Flathead in the estuary.

Great results can be achieved by rigging small soft plastic worms on Texas or running style rigs, casting the lure across tide and letting the lure tumble back down-tide before slowly retrieving it.  This method can be highly effective when fishing a berley trail and can out-fish bait.

To use this type of sinker -

  • Hold the sinker so the tip of the sinker faces up
  • Feed the end of your line down through the top so it exits from the bottom
  • Tie a hook to the end of your line using your knot of choice
  • Place a soft plastic lure onto the hook

When the lure is in position, the end of the bullet slides down to cover the head of the lure. This presentation holds the selected bait in a natural state, hiding the hook from sight, while keeping the hook in the perfect position for a solid hook set.

Nice compact, about half the size of lead

So much smaller

So I finally bit the bullet, so to speak and decided to give Tungsten a go. Well to say I’m amazed at the difference in size between tungsten and lead is a bit of an understatement. I brought a range from 1/16oz to 1/4oz and overall they must be close to half the size, I’ll definitely be looking at some larger sizes soon.
