Hi, I'm Mark The Shark with On this clip I'm going to show you how to place sinkers. As you can see here we have three different kinds of sinkers. This is the trolling sinker, trolling lead; okay. This is made for high speed trolling. This is the bank sinker. This is made for just deep dropping. And tis is an egg sinker; this is made for sliding on your actual line. Let me show you how to do the slider first. You take this egg sinker and you put it through the line here; okay. What you want to do is, you get a swivel and you tie a knot in the swivel here; a real easy knot; okay. And then, you got your sliding sinker here and then you want to put a leader on it. You come up here like this; bring your sinker up there and then we'll cut it right there and then we'll tie your swivel and I'll show you how this, how the sinkers slides on the actual line; catch more fish this way. Tie this again here and you got your sinker sliding back and forth like that and then you just tie your hook on the end of this. This is a good way to catch a lot of bottom fish and you can use live bait on here; a dead bait and this will slide up and down. Okay. Now we're going to try a different setup with a different kind of sinker. This is your bank sinker right here. This keeps your, your weight on the bottom; okay. You can tie this on right here and your bank sinker will stay on the bottom and then your hook will be off the bottom. The way it's set up; this is on the bottom like this and then what you do is you put your hook up here; you put a hook up here; okay and then you got your hook will go, right, over here, right above the sinker. And that's pretty much it. And that's how you use placement on sinkers. I'm Mark The Shark. Thank you for watching.
