cylindrical weights split shot

Recommended Posts

Glen speaks of using a cylindrical weight for split shoting (not drop shot) for grubs & other fishing. I looked at a few places and nobody had any. Does anyone know where I can get them. He said Mojo was the first company to produce them.

 

 

 

Thanks

looks good, but I was wondering if there was something besides the slip shot. Is there something like a long split shot that can encase the line and close tight on it?

 

 

Thanks Camman

The closest thing that I have found are "clam" weights at Basspro.  However, you can just peg the cylindrical slip weights or use a weight stop.

Pro Bass Anger, Shin Fukae, has published a recent video describing what he calls a "free rig" which is essentially a moving weight above the plastic and hook, like a bullet weight. But, marginally different in how it behaves. When it is cast out, the weight falls to the bottom much faster than the bait and the angler reels up slack to pull the two together. On each successive little pull back toward the angler, hopping it back, the weight pops up and the plastic bait sort of lags and floats behind. The Japanese are very innovative! 

 

It is different from a split shot, for sure, but it has that element to it of letting the bait float around.
