Hi,
That is a Breakaway Surfcasting Sinker. The wires are deigned to dig into the bottom to hold the sinker, and your baited hooks, in place. When you want to bring it in you apply extra pressure with your rod causing the wires to flip back the other way freeing the sinker. They work really well. You can read all about them here: https://fishingmag.co.nz/Breakaway-sinker.htm
