I would be better off with concrete weights, hmm there is an idea.

I had a similar idea... Why waste that much lead?   Concrete seems doable... Or rocks with a screw eye in them?

Sure, except that concrete and rocks weigh roughly similar to aluminum, which means they will be fairly large...

About a foot of 1" rebar with a hole drilled through it would give you a 2-1/2 lb weight. No problem dropping a bunch of those onto the seafloor.

That's being done already for deep dropping-rebar turns to rust PDQ.

Good to know! I have no experience deep-dropping, but would like to get out in the near future, and anything that helps to economize the tackle helps.
