Rated 5 out of 5 by JandC Bass Pro for all fishing needs My husband and I always buy from Bass Pro for all of our fishing needs. The only thing they could do better is putting the fish on the bait for us. The jackets we ordered are great, warm, and comfortable. The Hot N Tots are the best bait around. They will catch anything in the toughest of times. My children have ordered from Bass Pro for us for our birthdays and Christmas, because Bass Pro always has what we want. Thank you for being there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by retiredtelecom Not for Mountain Trout Fishing I have now used these sinkers (size B, BB & 3/0) for about 3 months now. They are an excellent value and work great for anything except for trout fishing in a river with a lot of rocks and submerged logs/ debris. I was getting an excessive amount of hard hang-ups and losing a great deal of hooks/leaders/swivels. A very experienced trout fishing friend suggested that I stop using the reusable weights and switch to either/or, round or clamshell weights. I took his advice and sure enough, my hang-ups went down by 60%. There is nothing wrong with the weights for general pond or river fishing but with the design of the reusable weights they hang-up more often in situations like I have described. June 8, 2009

Rated 5 out of 5 by sitruc Easily Removed I use these to add weight on plastics if I need a faster sink rate. You can use several or just a different size. They are easily removed if you want to fish weightless or want a quick rig similar to a Carolina without having to tie the rigging. June 6, 2008

A:They are #3 and BB size split shot. Small and light weight to use on my ultra-lights.
A:Depends on claritity and depth of the water Always go as light as possible, experiment to see what the fish tells you Some time a small split shot will work better than a heavier one that gives YOU a better feel of the botom, but if they want a slow drop you have to back off the weight. Rule of thumb use as little weight as possible. Wind can make a big difference in casting and keeping slack out your line so you can see any movement OR LACK OF MOVEMENT in you lineor If somethig is different SET THE HOOK
Details:i drft fish for salmon in new york and need a fairly heavy splitshot for the rivers. any ideas as to the better size? i usually use a 4.
A:Depending on how much weight you need, I would actually recommend using smaller sized egg sinkers for this application. That way you don't have to worry about them falling off. As far as keeping them stationary on the line i use a wooden toothpick inserted in the hole with the line, and you can adjust as needed. Hope this helps.
