When I run 1 oz heads, I use the 5 oz weight and 60' of line and I use 65lb PP. That gets me to 23' or so. I found a sandy clean bottom and figured it out bouncing it off bottom. When you do catch a fish on it, be very careful getting it off the hook, it is easy to have 3-4 books in your hands when the fish flops around. They are good rigs when the situation is right to use them. I really don't like trolling, but sometimes it makes the difference between catching fish and not. I don't have much time in using it yet, but it has produced for me.
