This particular leader design is intended to be used during a run of exceptional sized sharks that occurs along the coast in various locales during the winter, when most other sharkers have hung up their gear on a count of rain. Those that have spent those short winter days and long nights on the planks during the frigid seasons know what this means!
These leaders are designed specifically for winter-time land based sharking, using a tactic known worldwide as "Slide baiting". By casting a heavy anchor sinker (see our other products for examples) the angler can create a zip line effect, allowing a large, or fragile live bait to be presented at greater distances than they could be cast! A fantastic fishing tactic, and these leaders are the perfect tool for the job!
