Sand-Gripper or Clock-Face Sinker
This lead fishing sinker is designed to dig in and hold on fine sandy beaches. It doesn’t hold as well as wire spikes but holds better than a lead ball sinker. It has the advantage of being more compact than sand-spike sinkers and so takes up less space in your tackle box. There are no wires to go rusty.
The sand-gripper sinker is ideal when you want to fish lighter line yet still keep your baited hooks in one place when fishing over a sandy bottom. This sinker is only useful when there are no strong currents to move it along the seabed.
The sand-gripper sinker isn’t seen as much nowadays. It works well in over soft sand or muddy bottoms but is prone to snagging on a rocky shoreline.
