Choosing the right sinker
Sinkers are a type of fishing accessory that are used to add weight to your line and help your bait or lure sink to the desired depth. Sinkers can also affect the presentation and movement of your bait or lure, as well as help you cast farther and fish in different conditions.
To use a sinker effectively, you need to match the type, size, and shape of the sinker to the type of bait or lure you are using, the depth and current of the water, and the species you are targeting. You also need to choose the right rigging method for your sinker, such as attaching it directly to your line, using a swivel or snap, or using a leader or dropper loop. You can experiment with different sinker types and rigging methods to find what works best for your fishing situation. The key is to use a sinker that helps you present your bait or lure in a natural and attractive way for your target fish.
Split-shot sinkers are small, round weights that can be crimped onto your line wherever you want. They are very easy to use and versatile, and can be used for fishing with live or dead baits, as well as artificial lures. Split-shot sinkers can be used for species like trout, panfish, bass, and walleye
Egg sinkers are oval-shaped weights that have a hole in the middle, allowing your line to slide through them. They are also known as sliding sinkers, and they are good for fishing with live or cut baits in still or slow-moving water. Egg sinkers can prevent fish from feeling the weight when they bite, and can also reduce snags by keeping the weight away from the hook. Egg sinkers can be used for species like catfish, carp, and sturgeon
Bullet sinkers are cone-shaped weights that have a hole in the middle, allowing your line to slide through them. They are also known as worm weights, and they are good for fishing with soft plastic baits in weeds or cover. Bullet sinkers can help your bait penetrate through vegetation and debris, and can also create a nose-down action that mimics a feeding bait fish. Bullet sinkers can be used for species like bass, pike, and muskie
