 **** Our Exclusive, Deep Drop LINKABLE Sticks ****
After many request for Stick Sinkers weighing over 5 Lb., we have developed new proprietary molds that allow our customers to link our 5 Lb. Deep Drop LINKABLE Stick to any other size Stick we make. All it takes is a 1/4" X 1 1/4" stainless bolt and a nylock nut to link the Deep Drop Sticks together. Now you can make practically ANY WEIGHT Deep Drop Stick Sinker you might need.
The photos below show the bottom view of our new design Linkable 5 Lb. Deep Drop Sticks and they illustrate the massive slots, shoulders and bolt hole. It is extremely strong when linked. The bottom photo shows just three examples of possible combinations for our Linkable Deep Drop Sticks. Yes sir, they are strong. We conducted a very simple, but brutal, durability test on (5) 5 Lb. linked Deep Drop Sticks giving a final total sinker weight of 25 Lbs.
These were attached by cable to the hitch of my truck. We pulled them down 4.3 miles of ROUGH gravel roads at 40 to 45 MPH before any of the eyelets pulled out. For Sure they are TOUGH and the design of the indents at the bottom keep the bolt and nut from snagging. AND, they are the same price as our other Deep Drop Sticks per pound.

A Little About our Lead Fishing Sinkers

In the production of our lead fishing sinkers we use the very best raw materials and components available.  Though the lead used in our fishing sinkers is derived from industrial scrap we strive to keep our percentage of pure lead in our finished lead fishing sinkers to as close to 100% as possible.

We are very careful when purchasing our raw lead scrap and I personally inspect each and every lot that comes into our lead fishing sinker manufacturing facility. We accept no low quality lead mixtures that could adversely affect the final quality of our sinkers. The lower the percentage of pure lead used to make lead fishing sinkers, the harder and less durable they are. 

Hard casting of lead fishing sinkers is different from using hard lead in the production of lead fishing sinkers.  We use the technique, which has to do with mold versus lead temperatures, in the production of 90 % of our lead fishing sinkers.  The technique produces a more durable lead fishing sinker and therefore allows you to catch more fish using our Egg, Bank, Deep Drop Linkable Sticks and Rock Cod fishing sinkers.

The eyelets used in the production of our stick type lead sinkers are 100% brass rod  custom formed to fit our molds. They are expensive, but are much less subject to corrosion. Our Linkable Deep Drop stick sinkers can be used for a variety of purposes. Our customers off the East coast of the US use the lead stick weights for deep drop fishing for a variety of deepwater specie.  Recently, we have received orders from captains in Alaska who tell us that our design of lead stick fishing weights don’t seem to hang up so badly as what they were using while fishing for halibut.

Our lead fishing sinkers are packed in thick Bulwark Bags of either 5 or 10 Lbs. In some cases the fishing sinkers cast, depending on the particular size and shape, will not weigh out at exactly 5 or 10 lbs. per bag and in those cases we mark the bags in pounds and ounces of exactly what is in the bag. You can always rest assured that you will get AT LEAST the weight marked on every bag of any of our fishing sinkers. We use State of Florida certified scales when weighing any of our fishing sinkers.

Remember to take those kids fishing
And Catch Em’ Up!
