Concrete for weights..?

This is nothing new.....cheaper then lead....does not fly far..and sinks a bit slower...cost of lost is smaller..

I use concrete for my dunking poles...we do not need to cast far on kona side..many spots are off a small cliffs and water gets deeper near store...

We use a three oz cups ..extra large paper clips...quikcrete...with gravel.....paper clip are push in near cup lips..easy for tying..

Found this still too light.....so I purchace a bag of 1/4gravel stones..Lowe's hardware..added 1/4stones to the quikcrete pre mix.....almost double the weight...

You may have adjust amount of 1/4 gravel to. To add to fit your needs...
__________

Kona grounds has lots of smooth round flat type of stones.....everywhere...we zip ties the stones..and cast these stones for weights.........small game dunking.....reef fishes....mu

11 inch zip ties... My postal scale broke...order one on Amazon...to get the weighed stones I want to use...

Not sure if the concrete fish taste better then the stone ones..? Cannot tell the difference..? Um?

Aloha
