Looking for a draggin weight that doesn't cost too much? Don't want to lose your temper when you lose a rig because of the money you got wrapped up in terminal tackle? Check out my homemade draggin weights. Full credit to Steve Douglas and Larry Muse for this. Their idea, I copied it...

Iโ€™ve used em but donโ€™t like how they get tangled when moving across the lake fast. They flip around and get twisted in the wind pretty bad. I always wrap my line around one of the eyes when I stow my rods but that doesnโ€™t solve the issue. Very frustrating untangling those things so I went back to my old tried and true MT Pockets slinky weights. I can tell zero difference in snags between the 2 and I can get the slinkies from MT Pockets for cheap. Dragin weights work but they arenโ€™t for me.

There is a fine line between fishing and floating around like an idiot!!

Fair enough Chris. To each his own. When you find something you like, stick with it...
