I'm no expert but I do know that there are no alternatives.. at least for pouring yourself.. they need temps way too high.

I have bought large lead blocks at Fleet Farm before.. made for melting.. but not sure how you melt it.. maybe they have some things for that there too.

Hmmmm...

Hunting/fishing supply store?

Maybe a salvage/recycling yard.

I've even heard of people using old wheel weights to alloy with lead for a slighly harder metal.

ocf, Check your local tire shops, salvage yards, even in the curbs. For used or bent wheel balancing weights, I see them all over on the streets! Phred52

      I used a self adhering tape to attach them,  but now the tape is getting sticky and a pain to use.  Any ideas what something else too use? Thanks

      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber
