Jarvis Walker Breakaway Sinkers (Grapnel Sinker)
Looking something like an obscure torcher device, Jarvis Walker Breakaway Sinkers for sale now, are a Grapple sinker style favoured by surf anglers and those that fish the rocks. The streamline shape provides a good cast but its main feature are the grappling hooks on the side of the lead that break away when under significant pressure. The grappling hooks are essentially designed to provide hold. When fishing the surf or rocks where strong wave action or current is present, the Breakaway sinker ensures your bait stays in the strike zone longer.
One of the most frustrating features of wave movement at the beach is the lateral sweep. This is when you cast out and almost instantly your line starts travelling up or down the beach at a significant rate of knots. Your bait has barely any time in the intended fishing spot or gutter as the strong wave action grabs hold of your rig and takes it elsewhere. You can see by the style; these protruding metal rods provide plenty of hold under such conditions. The result is that you stay in the feeding zone longer and catch more fish.
Rock hoppers also favour Breakaway Sinkers when the current is busy and the waves are up. Nestled in the submerged structure, your bait holds its place. If the sinker becomes wedged or snagged the metal rods collapse and you can retrieve your rig. Nothing worse than losing the lot to a poorly placed rock.
Anglers chasing Salmon, Tailor and Mulloway are big fans of Breakaway Sinkers, often called the grapnel sinker. You’ll be a big fan too. Check out the sizes below and grab yourself one or a few.
