I threw them in there somewhere along the line  you can also squash them flat on the sides and even put a bend in them..i carry little bottle of liquid paper and paint them with that..the other trick is rub blade of knife down the side sceaping surface to leave shiny lead surface...rick

I think both Rick and I suggested barrel sinkers. When the fish are feeding on whitebait, sometimes small metal slugs or a simple barrel sinker on a treble are the only things that work. I always keep a few barrel sinkers in the tackle box but I do need to throw a few more trebles in. ?

I like  the paint job you’ve done, particularly the little red head. ??

I've stayed out of this cause I would just be repeating what has been said before, but another great little trick that works with timid Kings is just a simple piece of shredded white cloth ( t shirt ) on a small/medium jig head, single hook. Gar fish are a sucker for white rag as well.
