    Ive never used no roll sinkers before and this year im going to try them.I just ordered some as well as some other goodies from catfish connection;) My question is which side points toward the hook the fat end or the skinny end?

    I have been using them for a long time also, I always have the fat end pointing towards the hook.

    It really dosen't matter - it will work the same both ways - but I always been putting the fat end pointing down to the hook.

    Thanks guys i didnt think it mattered much but i wanted to check just to make sure i dont go out looking stupid,not that its very hard for me to do anyway.Ive always used egg sinkers and i just feel they get hung up way to much,im hoping using the no rolls will help cut back on some of that a little.

    They are designed to be used round part of the tear drop towards the hook. This helps to keep it from snagging when you bring in your line.
