Bass Pro Shops® Rubber Grip Lead Sinkers
necessity for flylining tuna
I find these rubber grip sinkers are a must have for quickly adding weight when using lite test mono(30# and 50#) when flylining for tuna..Can add 1 or more to line leaving as much line to baited hook as necessary and they stay where you put them..Plus they come in a number of sizes.

tear the rubber out
i extract the rubber out of these sinkers and use pliers to attach them to hooks on a spinner bait or jig. it works great in the heat of the summer to get your bait down deep in a hurry. i think they should design the same type of sinker but instead of the rubber piece maybe a thin rubber coating on the inside to keep it from sliding on the hook.

Rubber core sinklers unbeatable
Unlike biting down on, or plier squeezes on split shots, these sinkers are easy to attach. And more importantly detach.
Used them for bluefish in saltwater and now found the right size for ready use in fresh water. More specifically our trips up to New hampshire's Lake Winnepesauke.
Can't wait to see what the lake's white perch think? :)
