Does anyone know if Harvey O'Hara is still making and selling his weights? Its been many years since I got some from him. I don't want to call and bother him if he isn't anymore.

I don't like butting in but if you don't get what you want I know a place that sell the dredge type fish weights at a reasonable price. i had never used these until our trip to Erie this year. i was using 12# pancake weight on my riggers. but my son and I bought a boat that had 8# dredge weights and we forgot to load the pancake weights, so we were stuck using the 8# weights. as much blowback as we got with the pancake weights, I just knew we were going to get a mile of blowback. but to my surprise the blowback was about half as much as with my old weights.


i bought 1 10# coated weight for 42.00 shipped. he has heavier weights and has uncoated weights at lower prices. if you want to get in touch with him, send me a message and I'll get his info and send back to you.
