Materials: one golf ball-size Wiffle ball; three 1 oz. bank sinkers; spray-paint primer; spray paint in light blue or green; and a sponge (optional)
1. Spray the Wiffle ball with primer and let it dry, then spray-paint it light blue or green to make it less conspicuous in the water. Store in an egg carton to dry.
2. Force the bottom of a bank sinker through a hole in the ball, leaving the attachment ring on the outside.
3. Cut a slit between two of the holes and insert two additional sinkers. Glue slit closed.
4 (Optional): Before gluing the slit shut, insert a piece of sponge. Then you can add fish scent for additional attraction.
