The star sinker is an integral part of every serious surf anglers kit. It’s shape and weight serves an important role that ultimately will assist you in catching more fish. Don’t listen to those who tell you lead is lead, nothing could be further from the truth. Different fishing sinker shapes and configurations are not developed simply to stand out on a shelf to attract anglers with a bulging wallet. Shape serves a purpose and the Star sinkers for sale now have an important role to play when you are fishing a sandy sea bed.
Shaped a little like an upturned pyramid, the star sinker has an eye in the end to connect it to your mainline. The shape allows it to wedge hard in the sand which is important when you wish to keep you bait in the strike zone. A lateral sweep, strong waves and current can quickly move a ball sinker out of the gutter that contains the feeding fish. This gives you limited time with your bait in the feeding zone.
While the bait may not move as ‘naturally’ as you would prefer with all the weight and a stationary position, you still have the advantage as the bait is there in the feeding zone. Star sinkers usually have a little weight about them, so it can also provide some assistance when needing a longer cast.
