Default Lead Master Salt Water

Another project I have been tinkering with is a master to make a mold for a salt water spinner bait . At this time the weight is undetermined . I suspect the finished weight will be 5 0r 6 oz. Just tossing out a pick to see what the opinions may be Before I try to cast it .

Don't need it that heavy.
1 to 2 1/2 is big enough for a pier or surf caster trollers use the big stuff.
It looks good so far.
Good luck.

There is a reason it's called fishing and not catching.
I have to admit that I am a FISHAHOLIC.
I,m a man and I can do anything I want, I want to go fishing!! (is that ok with you dear?)

Looks good Toad...I would go some where in between. Say 3oz. You have to take into consideration of the current and depth, unless your in shallow. 3oz is a good all around weight for salt. It will be able to reach to 20 to 30 ft where the big boys are hanging out, with considerable current and wind.

Freshwater is for drinking, Saltwater is for fishing
