I try to go weightless most of the time simply because I feel that the bait has a more natural appearance. However, when I want a reaction bite I'll put on a weight to make the bait fall faster and that usually draws a reaction strike. But as previously mentioned, don't be afraid to experiment. On tough days and high pressure, weightless seems to work better. On days that are cloudy, pre-frontal conditions, it doesn't really matter if it's weightless or not. Some of it is personal preference as well!
