I have Been borowing a store bought jerk string with the big grapple hook and I really liked it and i have decided to just make my own. What is a good weight to use instead of buying a grapple hook form the store?

I use to use one of these.
Just a free weight you can get at any Fitness / major stores like kmart-walmart-sports authority . Can get them in 2.5lb. Now I just use the rig-em-rite sting.. Much more easy than my old homemade stuff.

flate rail plates for train tracks. Walk the tracks and you can find an old one tossed to the side. If shallow enough put a stake in the water and attach the bungee or whatever it is that you are using to it.

Small dumbell, Make one by melting lead in a muffin tin or coke can and using copper wire for a loop, Concrete filled solo cup with an eyebolt.
But, you can get the small grapling hooks (1.5lb) from Academy for $4.99 though.

That's how I got a 13" pecker.

If I can wade it, I use a stake

Honestly, if you have the time, just keep an eye out on Cabelas, Gander Mountain, Mack's, and Roger's. The end of the year waterfowl sales are upon us and will be here for a couple months. I got a couple Rig em Right jerk rigs last year for 50% off and free shipping. Not only are they better then a homemade, but at that price they are cheaper then being the pieces and making your own.

The store bought rigs are the way to go...
