Fishing weights are an important component in any angler's tackle box. Unlike sinkers that are mainly used for bait fishing, weights are primarily teamed with soft plastics and lures. Weights influence a bait's action and let you work them near bottom or any where else in the water column. For our purposes we use egg sinkers for the casting harnesses in sizes 1/2, 3/4, and 1 oz. For a drag line use a bottom bouncer rig in sizes 2, 3, 4 oz.
