Oz Sinkers

zoom texas rigged worm help?

when your fishing with a texas rigged zoom u tail or trick worm with a bullet weight how heavy should the bullet weight be? or is weightless just better?

The amount of weight is determined by the depth you're fishing and the size worm you're trying to get down there. Here are some general guidelines for a 6 inch worm...

0-3 feet - you could go weightless to work the surface, or to allow it to sink slowly...or put a 1/8 or 1/4 oz weight to keep the worm on the bottom.

4-7 feet - you can use a 1/4 or 3/8 oz sinker to get down here

8-15 feet - you're looking at 3/8 to 1/2 oz

15 feet or more - that's the range for 1/2 to 5/8 oz or more

A few sinker tips:
- for a different look to your worm, insert a roofing nail into the head...your worm will stand up on it's head...hook this 'wacky style' (hook in the middle of the worm) and you've got a unique approach

- if you're fishing really heavy weeds with open water underneath them in shallow water (3 -6 feet), some people use a really heavy bullet sinker (1 oz) to punch through the weed cover, then they yo-yo the worm up and down a few times, they make another flip

Hope all of this helps :)
