High quality long-tail, wired Surf Sinkers custom made to match our range of ready-tied rigs and terminal tackle.
Selecting the right sinker is essential for successful surf fishing and we're pleased to offer Sputnik-style surf fishing weights in a range of useful sizes: 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8oz.
From light bait and wait fishing using a Flyer Rig for croaker and perch with 2-4oz, to heavy-duty surf shark fishing using a wire Pulley Rig and 6-8oz, the streamline design ensures these sinkers cast further than a pyramid weight and they hold bottom better for a longer soak time and more bites.
The long-tail design also aids stability in flight and ensures the release mechanism on a Pulley Rig operates correctly when it impacts the water.
2oz to 4oz - Suitable for a Flyer Rig or any mono rig (Pulley or Carolina)
6oz to 8oz - Suitable for any wire or mono Pulley Rig or Carolina Rig
These are the best sinkers for any sort of surf fishing where you aim to hold a bait in place because the wires dig into the bottom and act like an anchor, but then releases when a fish hits and the wires fold back.
The use of high-quality components means these sinkers will last for years without breaking, making them a good investment.
Top tip: if the current or waves are especially bad, try zip-tying the sinker wires in-place to prevent them from folding back under the pressure. You can also pinch the wires together to make them grip tighter if needed.
