    Can someone educate me as to what kind of sinker i should be using when drifting? I have been using a 1oz. egg slipsinker with pretty good results, and almpst never get snagged. Do most people use the bent pencil looking NO-Snag sinkers. If so what are the advantages of them, and why the bent shape?

    I have no clue as to what most others use. I can't remember the name of them, but I use those flat type in about 2 oz..

    Hey Manny do a search on 'slinky weights' on the boc! The other one I've tried is a 'no row' sinker.

    I like to use the Bell sinker and bounce off the bottom, no roll will work but it works on your line also ck the sponsors Team Catfish has a style that should also a bullet weight will also work

    I've been using the 1.75oz and 2.5oz pencil sinkers from a Do-It pencil sinker mold, and they work well. I honestly don't think it matters too much, but a skinny profile sinker will slip through some snags that would catch a wider sinker. I would avoid flat sinkers like no rolls because they might spin / twist up the line when used for drifting or trolling, but regular bank sinkers aren't bad.
