A simple egg shaped sinker, from DM Lead, used for a variety of applications and species in both freshwater and saltwater. Freshwater bass anglers often use egg shaped sinkers for their Carolina rig technique which sets the weight 12-36" up the line allowing the bait to trail behind, swimming through the water uninhibited. It can be a very effective technique, especially when bass are scattered out in deep water. In addition to bass fishing, many anglers turn to egg sinkers for Catfish in lakes or rivers as they allow the line to slip through while the fish eats the bait. This enables the fish to get hooked before feeling any type of resistance. The same principles are used for saltwater fishing when targeting a number of bottom feeding fish such as sturgeon, halibut and more. For weedless performance, few sinkers have a reputation like the famous Egg Sinker. Ideal for catfish, it's also a great all-around sinker for a huge variety of fishing applications. We offer the DM Lead Egg Sinkers in 11 sizes: 1/4oz - 8oz. Quantity varies.
