There are structure spoons that fit in the 1oz-2oz category

There's punch weights over 2oz. A big hunk of plastic can get heavy. I've got some custom poured 16" worms that are probably over an ounce before I add a hook or weight. Big spinnerbaits run 1.5-2oz like the Ledgebuster spinnerbaits. The biggest rattle trap that Bill Lewis made, and maybe still does, was 1.5 ounces. Tons of big swimbaits, some over a pound. A 190 Whopper Plopper is 2 3/4 ounces. Big topwater walkers and pencil baits are mostly in the 1-1.75 ounce range. River2Sea Bubble Walker 128 is a massive popper that weighs 1 1/4oz. Hack Attack jigs are available up to 1 1/4oz.

 

There's lots of big baits out there.

MS slammers are out of my price range 

A Slammer can catch you hundreds of fish per bait provided you don't do anything silly with it though. The cost per fish ratio is much cheaper than a bag a Senkos if you look at it that way. I've caught I don't know how many fish on the first one I bought and it's still going strong.

I don’t even buy Senkos, I buy Yum Dingers and they work fine. I can probably justify spending at most $20 for a single bait every now and then, the most I’ve spent on one is about $16 but $32 for a lure would make me not want to fish it. The more expensive lures I have, which are topwaters, I usually fish with 20lb line, I’m young as well, need to save some money.

I'm trying to find a place in my tackle boxes to fit two more Rapala Super Shad Raps I just picked up.  They're 1 5/8 oz. each.  

 

Tight lines,

im mainly fishing from shore where heavy baits can be a problem. I use a 1/8oz Carolina rig with a 24” leader.

if you're young i wouldn't really be looking at swimbaits the normally require a new setup to throw them effectively
