Tungsten weights are almost impossible to make for the average fisherman do to the melting point of tungsten is 3500* !!

I'd be surprised to find someone who could make tungsten weights. The melting point is like 10 times the temperature of lead and 4 times the temperature of carbon steel (around 6,000 degrees). I think you'd need a small nuclear reactor to get those kinds of temps.
