    What is the all out best sinker to make if you fish lakes, rivers, and ponds? I was thinking the no roll sinker would work for everything?

    I use nothing but no roll sinkers. Sometimes I have to change sizes, but for me 2oz is pretty standard.

    I use no rolls 90 percent of the time, in 3-oz all the way up to 8-oz's

    I like the snagless lead and egg sinkers for lakes egg and no roll for slow to medium speed river and bunker lead for faster water.

    I only use no rolls as well. They are great sinkers.

    I use no rolls that I make myself from wheel balancing weights. They work fine for me. I quit using the egg sinkers a long time ago because I usually fish current.

    Most of my local tire shops give them willingly.

    I mainly use walking sinkers when I'm drift fishing. No-rolls the rest of the time.
