I would place two weights in the head section, and then one in each of the other two sections...excluding the tail. The second and third sections, I would place the weight in the forward half of the section. I would also make each weight progressively smaller towards the the rear of the bait. In other words, the weight in the third section would be the smallest. If you can get away without putting any weight in the third section it would be better, but you will probably need one. As far as the head section is concerned, I usually place a larger weight rear of center (close to the joint) and a smaller one near center of the head...that is if you actually need two.
