This is just for those people who were asking about where I weight my sinking glide baits. This is where I weight mine but each type of bait is different. I used lead to weight and some fake wood puddy to fill in these ones..

I usually use epoxy puddy but for these ones I used the fake wood puddy.Also for the one gentlman whos asked, I use scrap lead I buy from a scrap yard and melt in down..

psst i have a small tip for you.. you should make your own lead bars with bigger diameter that way you can use only 2 or ever 1 spot to weigh your jerkbaits, and you dont have to drill various spots to the lure if you want to make em sink.

Thanks Mikko.. I actually do make lead bars.. I melt my scrap lead in to 2 sizes of lead bars and then when needed, I melt the lead bars into the smaller lead bars to put in the baits. Is this what you mean? Also, I weight my jerkbaits like this cause it seems to give me the action I want and it seems to make the bait sink evenly. I am going to try drilling one hole and see how it goes.I'm curious how this will affect the action.. I hope it works because it took me along time to figure out the perfect spots to weight these baits .If the one spot works and the action is still good, I will save alot of time...Always love your tips Mikko...

Also Miko, this way of weighting them gives them a great wiggling action when sinking, will the one or two holes still give them that affect? When I weight my topwater spooks I now use 2 large holes in the middle to weight and they seem to have the best walk the dog action I've had yet.. Maybe the one or two holes in the middle will give my jerkbaits more of a walk the dog effect..

i would say that most of the time large darting action styled glider baits work best when they are weighted with from only 1 position, atleast that has been the case with my gliders, it saves a heck of a lot of time too when you only have to drill one or 2 holes while finding the right weighing positions so that the lure will sink level
