What is it?
Bullet Weights’ Fish Head weights.
What does it do?
They’re bullet weights made for Texas rigging, though they work well for light flipping and pitching as well as Carolina rigging. You can also fashion them into drop shot sinkers with a flipping peg.
Why do I need it?
To get your soft plastics down on the bottom. The weights these are available in are 1/16 ounce, 1/8 ounce, 3/16 ounce, 1/4 ounce, 3/8 ounce and 1/2 ounce, so you’ve got options for slowly sinking a finesse worm (1/16) to light pitching and flipping duty (1/2 ounce).
How do I use it?
Like you would a regular slip sinker; thread it on before you tie on your hook. You can also peg these like a regular weight, which is ideal when fishing around grass.
What sets it apart?
Most obvious is the paint job! Unless you do it yourself, you’ve most likely not seen a sinker painted to look like a critter. They come in five specially crafted color schemes: fire fish, tiger fish, baby bass, silver ghost and green pumpkin/red belly.
