Bullet Weights® Expands Sinker Offerings

Fishing Tackle Reviews, Freshwater Fishing Articles, Freshwater Fishing Tackle Reviews, Freshwater Tackle Articles

Bullet Weights® has added two items to its product line to meet the growing trend of application-specific fishing sinkers.

“We are continuing to see anglers becoming more diverse in sinker selection,” Bullet Weights President Joe Crumrine said. “In the past an angler may have had three or four different types of sinkers, but now that same tackle box will have a full array of sinkers in different shapes, colors, materials and sizes.”

Here are the two new products from Bullet Weights:

Perch Rig
The tandem-hook rig is designed specifically to catch schooling perch. After baiting each hook, the rig is dropped to the bottom and then reeled up six to 12 inches.

Bullet Weights Perch rigs are available with red, silver, gold or chartreuse colored spoons. The suggested retail price of a tandem-hook rig is $3.99.

Trolling Weight Kit with Snaps
The kit includes weights and snaps used often in the Great Lakes and other areas by anglers who are trolling in deep water for species such as salmon, steelhead, lake trout and striped bass. The advantage of this system is that the size of the weight can be changed easily and quickly without retying. The rubber snap also prevents line damage.

The Bullet Weights Trolling Weight Kit with Snaps has a suggested retail price of $34.99 and includes the following pieces: two weights of each in the following sizes (½ ounce, ¾ ounce,
1 ounce, 1½ ounces, 2 ounces and 3 ounces), four split rings and four snaps.

Headquartered in Alda, Neb., Bullet Weights is a leading manufacturer of fishing sinkers and accessories. They offer fishing sinkers made of lead, steel (Ultra SteelÒ), tin (Ultra TinÔ), tungsten and brass. Bullet Weights products are available in fishing tackle retailers, sporting goods stores and sporting goods departments of mass merchants.
