Any Ideas?

Bought an old tackle box at a garage sale and these were in it. Anybody know what they are. If anybody knows what they are I would appreciate knowing.

They are river weights, you bend those out side wires so it wonít roll.

Yes, glad someone came up with the right answer. Spider bullet weight on Amazon if you want to get more of them.

Used for anchoring baits in high current situations like river, ocean, jetties, etc. bend down spikes like a spider to create the anchor. Best for sand bottoms or you will anchor it permanently

I know it's not their intended purpose, but it looks to me like they'd work pretty good for freeing snagged lures provided you don't bend the wires down. I'd keep one in my tackle box just for that reason. It would at least be worth a shot. Just cut a tight notch in the loop with a Dremel and have at it.

Those are anti-jetski and anti-SUP baits. Cast and retrieve on 60# braid on a heavy glass rod is most effective
