    Say a 3-4" bream, would a 1oz. pyramid sinker about a foot below it hold it down, or would I need more weight?

    It would hold it down if there is no current. Typically, I use between 2 and 8 ounces of weight depending on current.

    Use the least amout of weight possible to give your gill plenty of action. Keeping current in mind. If there is not much current 1oz should work fine.:big_smile:

    Michael has nailed this one... perch in a natural state is not hindered by having a sinker tied on to it, and flatheads catch the perch all the time. So, just put enough lead there to control the perch.

    I don't know I usually have to use a three for most of my baits, but it all depends on how and where your fishing
