What Size Weights for My Setup?

Rate this topic

1 post in this topic

I've got a Penn Captiva Combo (902MH Rod & CV6000 reel - I know, not the most popular setup) and I'm likely to fish the ditch a little more as well as some inlets with current.

 

Assuming I'm fishing squid or chunked bait, what's the best weight to use?

 

I'm now fishing 17# mono to a swivel, then a 3-4' drop with a weight on lighter mono (should it snap, saving the rest of the rig) - and another 3 or 4' section of leader w/ hook and bait.

 

I fished a river like jetty earlier this week and 4 oz. wasn't enough to hold bottom. I just don't want to put TOO much on and be unable to feel the hits, or, end up likely to lose rigs on my rob & reel.

 

Any suggestions on what's a good size weight to carry?
