Well i have just made 12 cobbs's crazy shad bodies. and now it's time to weight them! Well do anyone know how much weight i should put in my baits? when they are finished they might weight 110-120g i use aspen wood for the baits.

well do u think that 30gram in the tail and 30 in the front will be to much?

i'm just making baits just now, so i haven't tried it but i planned to rig them up, hooks eyes etc etc then use some weights tied to the bottom treble to see what makes it sink at the rate i want, then the tough bit is putting that amount of weight in the right place i guess, also i suppose the lure wil be lighter when lead holes get drilled but it will just be a case of dabbling till its right
i'm just a beginner so this might be rubbish but its where i plan to start from
hope it helps
