Rated 5 out of 5 by bassin73 worm weights I have been using these worm (bullet) weights for 25 years, and I think they are as good as any on the market today. I love the concave base, they fit all plastic worms, grubs, and even hand pours. Why would a person buy a more expensive brand? I add my own touch to these, I hand paint them to suit different applications. I recommend these to any one. The hole that runs through it, for fishing line to pass, is the perfect size, and they peg really good. So if you need a great worm weight, check these out, you'll be satisfied, there even priced right. bassin73 December 6, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by floridabass Keep some in your tackle box I always keep a variety of worm weights in my tackle box because fishing a plastic worm is my #1 Bass bait. I went up to Bass Pro Shop and purchased the plain unpainted worm weights in several different sizes. (From 1/16 up to 3/8oz). They are available already painted in different colors, but they are cheaper if you get the unpainted worm weights. What I've been doing for years is spray painting the weights in different colors. Then painting a clear coat of paint over the color paint for extra protection. This way, you can color the weights any color you want and the coating lasts for a good while. Then a friend told me that he uses his wife's finger nail polish (the stuff she doesn't want any more). Nail Polish comes in a bunch of different colors and is easy to apply to the worm weights. He says that they also sell a clear finger nail polish with silver flakes, or different colored flakes, and that he likes using that as the second coat. November 3, 2010

Details:Haha, im new to using worms, and i have no idea as to how these weights are used with them, so could anyone explain this?
A:Slip the worm weight, pointed end first, on to your line. Tie your hook, recommend a 4/0 offset, to the line and then Texas rig your worm so that it is weedless. When you feel the fish, set the hook HARD!
A:To texas rig a worm, string this weight on your line and then tie on your hook. Reel the worm in with your rod tip up , dropping it parallel with the water and bringing it back up. The weight will slide up and down the line causing your worm, lizzard or creature bait to "swim"
Details:I heard that the production of lead weights is going to be stopped because of the environmental impact. Does anyone know if this is this true?
A:No, the lead thing for fishing got stopped for now. Folks need to be more concerned about the oil and gas slicks being put on our waters by these gigantic boats.
A:Most likely will as lead is hard on the environment and look at the lead shot for duck and goose hunting!!!! Its almost gone!
A:I have heard that some states already have bans on lead. Haven't heard anything about it around here,SC.
A:You know, they (mostly environmentalist)
have been saying that for years. I have never met a bass with cancer yet. And
I have met a lot of bass! I feel that the
fishermen have a lot more to worry about
than lead weights. If a person worries about
handling these weights, because of the
lead, simply paint them.
Details:I am going to be using these for texas rigging Zoom's tiny brush hogs. THe bass on my part of the lake aren't that big and got the smallest brush hogs i could find got #1 hooks and tryin to find which size weight so wat do u think, the 1/16 0z or the 1/8 oz.
A:Hook size is OK. If the fishing depth is less than 10 1/16 should be used. If deeper or fishing in a river with current go to a 1/8.
A:I usually use the baby brush hogs with no weight at all with a 2/0 hook, especially in cooler water. This will get strikes from big bass also. The less weight the better.
A:You know, size of bass is not important,
because large and small bass will eat any thing, at certain times. I know for certain
that small bass will hit prey (or objects)
5 times there size. If I were fishing your part of the lake, I would want to catch the largest one in that area. So having said that, since
you have small brush hogs, and have # 1
hooks, You need to figure out how slow you want it to fall. because bass are smart, and know when something's not
right. If your water is shallow, and the current is not strong, Use the 1/16 oz.
However, if there are dense weeds, or
deep water, or strong wind, go 1/8th oz.
A:both would work out great in that rig....
A:depends on wind and current... always use the lightest weight possible

A:Get a few diff size weights so you got um and experiment with weight size
A:depending on the turbidity of the water and current the best weight choice might differ. if the water is clean and the current is weak use the /16 ounce. if it is even a little rough i would use the 1/8 ounce
A:You really can use either weight just depends on how fast of a drop you want on your bait.
Details:i'm trying to get started on a Carolina rig and i wanna know whether to get the weights and bead and etc. or just buy the Carolina rig shortcut that BPS offers.
A:YES! Current should determine the weight! If in heavy current use heavier weight. If well below the dam in an area of the river that has good current but not heavy current use a smaller weight and worm, and let the current deliver the bait. Keep a tight line! Action will be fast!
A:I like the bead method the best. I use braid line and run it through the eye of the bead twice to make it adjustable without reting knotts.
A:That totally depends on the individual. I
personally add different applications to
the Carolina rigs. Like different weights,
or different glass beads, different colored
beads, some faceted, some smooth and round. I may make it only 24" instead of
36". There are many variations to the
Carolina rig. Use your imagination, you
may invent something that works better.
Thats how the split shot rig came about.
A:i like to make my own for the various colors and the water conditions
A:both will work... well -- If you need to rig specific do your own if not get the pre rig

A:Both are good ideas
Top 50 Contributor
A:A Carolina rig is usually used in a situation in which the water is dirty or unclear, with low visibility. The purpose of the rig is to make alot of noise that will attract fish, which is done by the bead and the bullet weight clicking together, which will travel very far in water and get the fish's attention. This is about the best lead weight out there, in my opinion, but tungsten weights are better all around weights, because they are louder and more heavy for a smaller size, but they are more expensive. I haven't used the shortcut rig, but it didn't look very good to me. I have also found that the beads Bass Pro Shops makes, they are called "faceted glass beads" because glass beads are much louder than plastic.
