Big sinkers

12 posts in this topic

Been looking for some larger sinkers for Mille Lacs fishing (3 oz) but can't seem to find them at the G Mtn place. Where can I get them in the area of the SW Metro?

do you mean lindy rig sinkers or would just the 3 oz sliding bell sinkers work?

Bell Sinkers

Don't really see what I'm looking for at Cabelas either.

Off shore tackle has a snap weight kit that has everything you are looking for. You can use them as snap weights for trolling cranks deep or sliders for live bait rigging. Just search Off Shore tackle and you'll see what I'm talking about.

The bait store in downtown Shakopee has up to 3 ounce bell sinkers, bank sinkers, and pyramids. I think the guy that runs the place is a &%*$, but he has a good supply of weights.

wwg:
why is it everyone I talk too has the same feelings? I dont' know what it is, but I feel the same way.
Sure glad 169 sports opened. I cringed every time I needed bait. Speaking of which. I'm pretty sure 169 has the sinkers you need. Well stocked for cats!

Could you just use pencil lead and measure out an approx weight to use? Fix it to a swivel for a sliding sinker?

I picked mine up in a bait shop in Red Wing. Sorry, don't remember the name but it was a really big and really nice place.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
