Poured my own lead spider weights tonight. Turned out pretty well. 1-3lb spiders.

Nice I need to start making my own because the big ones are expensive.

Known more commonly as "sputniks." Use for surf fishing.
Also can be used for trolley weights for a trolley line/live bait fishing off an ocean fishing pier. Those are some big ones...

Yeah ive used small sputniks for surf fishing, but you could almost use that as a reef anchor. Never seen them that big before .

That's what you have to have to hold those 20-30 lb baits down in the currents around here

Don't cast it. 14/0 senator and 80-130 harnell rod, 200lb braid to 200lb mono. Kayak the bait out.

Those big spider weights gave me a work out this weekend. Fully harnessed drag locked holding the spool doing squats and then some to get them over the ledge. My bait couldn't budge it and neither could a tipper. Doa, the hardest reel up iv ever had to do between the weight and the tipper getting stuck in the ledge. Wouldn't you know my next drop I hook a beast and just start to heave him over the ledge and knot failure. All the pressure before and it was fine but with the big shark I got knot failure. My shark fishing luck has been down lately. Sure catch has good deals on the strongest weights I've used. Get a 32 and let your buddy reel it in thinking its a fish.
