Didn't think you guys would see the leaves on the penny...... LOL
And the hole for the sinker is thru the center. The wgt sits right on the bottom.......... about 1/4" high. Awesome weights, there is little way for the current to catch them.
An childers I would love to go for GAR....... just we don't have'em. Me thinks wifey hooked into a sturgeon. Hit just like'em....... tap....... tap...... tap........................ bang down the rod goes. Looked like a teeny bullhead and bang....... line being pulled off drag for what seemed like over a min. All she did was set the hook and lean back to enjoy the ride and then pop she fell over backwards. But like I said as soon as she hit the 20lbs mono backing she would have more than likely lost the fish. what a waste of line tho....... I had just respooled hers[&o]
