Uhm, yes, duh, it is. I guess I've consumed too much lead. :-)

Mike,
any luck on locating any molds?

we talked about molds for halibut fishing with a guy i fish with and would like to know if you had found out anything.

i will do some online research to see what they run for new. ive got access to plenty of tire balancer lead. wouldnt be too expensive to pour your own cannon balls if you didnt have to pay for lead.

another option i heard about but have never seen in person is some sort of a quick release with a 2-3 pound river rock. get a bite, set the hook, drop your weight so your just fighting the fish and not the weight at the same time.

cheers,
serg

update-
found the mold at cabelas for 65.99 for either 2 or 3 pound mold.

If I'm picturing the same device, those are for mooching usually....if you try and bounce bottom your first bounce will release the lead.

Na that won't happen bouncing your rig. Only if something pulls on the Bait side of the line, or a snag of the bait side will the release happen. I have used quick releases many times with out fail. They have a 3-4lb spring load to them if not more. I Will be using them this year out at the hill with some river rocks rapped in hanger hooked to them.
