    Not just a hook there... that's a sinker (Not a balloon)

    i think you missed his meaning. i think he meant "did he need a sinker that big to pull down a balloon.

    looks like about 3 ounces

    and in ocean fishing this would be about the average size

    man that guy was either unlucky or i was lucky

    there have been many times when i snagged something and yanked the weight and it came flying near my head

    would have been eben worst if it was a pyramid sinker [​IMG] ouch

    Damn I never want that shit to happen to me, my eyesight sucks as it is.

    That reminds me of something my brother was watching "101 things they've pulled from the human body" on either Mon or Tues.

    There was a guy who was doing some roofing on a ladder. One leg twisted and as he fell he fell onto the only UNCAPPED rebar pole coming up from the unfinished concrete wall that was being built. Rebar is that steel, twisted, solid tubing that they use to reinforce concrete with.

    The Rebar went through his cheak and OUT his eyesocket. They interviewed him for the show, he looks like a normal person with hardly any scars. The rebar actually pushed his eye back into his skull, but didn't cut it, tear it, or hurt it in any way.

    and he's still alive to tell the story.
