Lure rating and Sinker weights

Recommended Posts

Simple question:

 

Does lure rating apply to sinkers also? I have a 7’ ML rod rated for 8-14lb line and 1/4-1/2 oz lures. However, I want to use this to fish the lower niagara drifts and would need to attach a 1oz pencil lead. Granted, I would not be actually casting, just bottom bouncing/vertical drifting from a boat.

 

Please provide some input!

 

greatly appreciated

You might consider checking the educational seminar schedule at the Greater Niagara Fishing Expo January 17 to 19 - lots of good speakers and a number of offerings on fishing the Niagara.  Most of the seminars are free with the purchase of a show ticket.

Don’t worry about the lure weight rating. You might get away with that ML but most use a M to MH fast action. You want a sensitive tip and a good back bone. With a fast tip you’ll be able to feel the bottom well and still have a good hook set.
