Akron Lead Source

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by foxfire, Dec 15, 2008.

  1. Any one know of a good source for soft lead in the Akron area? I finally purchased a football head jig mold after years of loosing them expensive 3/4 oz jig heads up on erie. Thanks

    i havent poured jigs in years, but when i did, id go to any gas station that did tire mounting/balancing and just ask for the old wheel weights. this was over 20 years ago, so id say try a pep boys or maybe sears. also make sure to set your mold on the hot pot while the lead is melting to heat it up. if not your first couple of pours will have voids in them.
     

  3. Kames in N Canton, Rodmakers in Strongsville are possible. Jannsnetcraft.com in Toledo has it for sure and they will ship.
