I remember reading in IA that spark plugs make excellent sinkers. Does this mean that it includes the ceramic or just the metal portion ? If its just the metal portion I have a whole lot of them in different sizes. Have been using them and getting a good casting distance compared to the weights that are bought. Anyone wanting them can get in touch with me. Also using heavier metal components such that are upto 82 grams in weight with heavier rods with good casting results. Still not catching any large fish. Is it to do with my sinkers ? please advice.

Hi Ajay,

If I remember that post was made by Masheerken, perhaps he will reply about the spark plug bit.

Casting as far as possible or into the deepest water does not ensure you will catch big fish, you need to cast into the right places or create a swim where you can lure the fish into by some prebaiting etc. I am sure some of the guys who are better versed in this kind of fishing than I am will give you something more informative.

Hey!
The reason plugs make good is there shape and the weight. I had access to tons of them as my Bro in law had a garage in Delhi. Being kind of streamed lined they went far and did not foul the line on the way. So use them with the ceramic or without. The main reason they are good is that they are cheap and dispensable.

Soren and Bobby are absolutely right. Big fish hang around where they feel safe. Not in open water but around any kind of cover. The chances of getting big fish is greater if you fish near weeds or where the small bait fish are.

Thanks for the response. What is the ideal Distance between hook and sinker ? For surf I am using about 2 feet with prawns as bait is this ok. Don't know if it's the patience factor. Any help is good. Off to Goa on Next Monday will try all advice. Still feeding the fish in the Arabian sea.
:D

Change your setup to Paternoster or fish finder rig. (You can still use your spark plug :lol: ).

Try to study the place you are fishing. If you are fishing a beach, kindly refer the below link.

The key to success is to read the surf.. if your doing bait fishing from the beach.
The link Ali has posted is very informative.

Ajay take a look at where you intend to fish at low water, you should see gulleys and other features that may hold fish as the tide floods.
