Egg or slip weights and sinkers are commonly used by deep sea and near shore anglers for bottom fishing. There are some advantages to using egg or slip lead sinkers. This style fishing weight slides freely on the fishing line, and slip weights are “egg” shaped. The rounded “egg” shape helps to avoid snagging bottom structure such as rocks, wreefs, and wrecks.

Pyramid weights and sinkers are commonly used by inshore and offshore anglers. This style of fishing weight is designed for sandy and muddy bottom. Pyramid shaped, lead fishing weights are ideal for anchoring your bait in current, surf, or channels. The disadvantage to pyramid sinkers is they are triangular and pointed. This shape is easily lodged or or snagged in bottom structure such as reefs, rocks, and wrecks.

Teardrop weights and sinkers are commonly used by deep sea and near shore anglers for bottom fishing. There are some advantages to using teardrop lead sinkers. This style fishing weight anchors well in sandy & muddy bottom yet, due to the rounded teardrop shape, it does not snag quite so easily. When fishing up in the water column over reefs, rocks, wrecks, pyramid weights are also used at the bottom or end of a fishing rig.

Trolling weights and sinkers are commonly used by deep sea and near shore anglers for trolling medium to shallow depths. There are some advantages to using trolling weights, versus a down rigger or planer. This style fishing weight is torpedo shaped and hydro-dynamically designed to minimize hydrolic drag. The disadvantage to trolling weights is, they are limited to medium to shallow fishing depths.
