Snap weight placement

Recommended Posts

What are your suggestions for the placement of a snap weight on a ten color?  The other day, I placed it where my 50' of mono met the first color and later between the second and third color. Didn't work. We are fishing 65-70 down lately.

I always put it on the backing, about 30'in......... regardless of the number of colors being weighted....... that way things are consistent and can be duplicated with success.

We attach the leadcore to leader using spro swivel. Snap weights go on leader to keep from damaging lead or Dacron sheath on the cores!

The closer you get the clip weights to the lure the more the lure will move up and down in the water column as your speed changes so it really depends on how much column you want to cover. There are charters that I've heard run clip weights less than 10 feet from the lure. Where I'm at the fish tend to be in a small band of the column so I put my clips in front of the lead core and fine tune the depth with the amount of backer I let out.
