Impact Sinkers

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. Embarassed 

We have been given a couple of impact sinkers, but have no idea how to rig them up. We are going up to Jurien this weekend and would love to give them ago.

Has anyone used them before? or could direct us to a site that shows how to set them up. 

Also has anyone got any advice as to some good places to fish? We are strictly landbased but we do have a 4wd.

 

Thanks in advance,

Shortly. Smile

I havent used them, but I have rigged one up myself that does the same thing. Basically the bottom hook hooks over the little catch on the sinker. When you're casting, the mulie or whatever stays inline so you dont loose distance or your bait from having it helicopter. When it hits the water, the hook is jolted off the catch and its like a standard rig.

Ask Craig White at Jurien

Ask Craig White at Jurien Seasports about beach fishing up there...there is some outstanding tailor and mulloway fishing at Hill River, although not sure about how you'd go this time of year.

Good beach fishing there , and in the bay for MAKO's and stingrays with the odd Mulla and shark as well as Tailor in the morn/ evenings baitcasting mulies .

 

I hooked a stingray there and it spooled me of 900m of 15 kg line off a deep dish Alvey , didn't even slow down with full drag and palming the spool.

Mon, 2008-05-12 21:27

I think we might go and pay john and david from complete angler joondalup a visit and hopfully they can show us how to set up the impact sinker

We have never been to Jurien before so it will be a learning experience for us. We will definitely visit the tackle shop and see what they recommend.

Maverick, your stingray sounded more like a submarine lol. Ihope we dont catch to many of them, could handle a few sharks for something a little different. Laughing

I have been told

that you can put a swivel on the bottom hook of a set of gangs to attach the clip from the impact sinker. Haven't tired it myself.

Went up to Complete Angler today, and I just want to say what a great help John and David were to us.  Thanks heaps. Smile

They were a great help in choosing a new rod and real set for my boyfriend and even helped him choose a suitable line. Overall a great place to shop and we will definitely be back. Hopefully not to spend as much as we did today though. Tongue out

Mon, 2008-05-19 17:42

Colin he ended up with a 11ft Starlostix and a sperhos 12000FA reel. It proved to be a good combination as he ended up catching about 15 tailor on it over the weekend up at Jurien.

Dreamweaver I nearly had a heart pulpatations on the weekend, he cast out with his brand new rod I heard a "pop" looked over and sure enough there goes the top of his new rod flying off into the water lmao. Luckily enough the line stayed attached and he was able to real it in. All i could see was dollar signs in my eyes as i saw it go flying out to sea. Tongue out

Love those Starlo Stix and the speros are a good reel. God way to christen it with 15 tailor. Not so good to see the rod coming apart.

Shortly - Casting

Mon, 2008-05-19 17:50

LOL Shortly - sounds like you'll need to give your parner instructions.

1) Cast line and rig.

2) Do not cast any rod parts.

 

Laughing

 

I agree with Colin, a great way to christen any outfit!
