i like using sinker slides with River sinkers for all of my lake and river catfishing.. no sinkers bangin on my rods while traveling and the ability to easily change sinker sizes without having to retie is nice.
My 2nd question is about sinker sizes.. Myself, like everyone has a Plano box of sinkers in my Tackle bag. Depending where I am fishing I need 1oz all the way up to 6oz sinkers to hold. When I started I carrried 1,2,3,4,5,6oz sinkers... Anymore I carry 1,2,4oz sinkers combining sizes to get the desired weight. To me the plus is fewer sizes to mold and fewer to have carry... what about everyone else? Any and all input and thoughts would be appreciated.. fred
It's like playing chess with a pigeon, no matter how good you are at chess. The pigeon is just going to knock over the pieces, crap on the board, and strut around like its victorious.

I find 4 to be the magic number for anywhere, especially when casting, but 3, 4 and 5 is what I carry and mold. I like eggs for channels. Then banks, flat banks or river for flatheads. I use sinker slides also. All 3 sizes work well on duck and goose decoys also so I can use them double duty.
For lake flathead if I am using the boat and dragging baits and dropping them, I like as little weight as possible. In this situation a 3oz pyramid is perfect typically.
