"Minnesotans spend about $17 million annually on hooks, sinkers and jigs. The Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance estimates about $8.5 million is spent on lead tackle in Minnesota each year."

Interesting read about lead in tackle...

Gosh, it will be about 60 years before I have to buy any more new sinkers. At the rate I lose lead maybe 75 years. I think I lost a sinker last year, but I not sure, it might have been the year before last. That is do to using 30/8 Spider Wire and Fire Line , not my skills. I stocked up on lead just in case I need to use more of it. I bought another bag of worm weights. Now I have 2 bags I bet there has to be 10 weights to a bag.
The one rod that has mono (20lb big game) on it is still in the rod locker, There is a good chance I might use that rod this year, but I am not sure when.
Ok you got me, eveyone that knows me, know I fish weightless texas riged Senkos, but I have been thinking about using a weight one of these days.

I'm all for the idea of non lead tackle
