High quality long-tail, wired Surf Sinkers (Sputnik sinkers) custom made to match our range of ready-tied rigs and terminal tackle. These are the best available anywhere and will last for many seasons.
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, 5, 6, 7 and 8oz.
From light bait and wait fishing using a Flyer Rig for croaker and perch with 2, 3 or 4oz, to heavy-duty surf shark fishing using a wire Pulley Rig and 6, 7 or 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)
5oz 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.
