Thread: cod weights

  1. #1

    Default cod weights

    Any body using cod weights when anchored and halibut fishing. I have found they hold bottom better then cannon balls when the tide is ripping. A friend of mine uses lead head jigs with a trailer hook and consistently has more hook ups then everyone else on the boat.

    Default I like the cod weights

    I prefer the cod weights over the cannon ball sinkers, not because they hold bottom better, but because they don't roll all over the place in the boat when I am trying to store them.

    Love cod weights. I wish I could find the mold for 2 pounds. I have a 3 pound mold. I love that they don't move around on the boat.

    Oh- I've got a few of those on the boat. Didn't know they were called cod weights though. Learn something new every day.

    i use that kind of weight exclusively; just like you said, they hold the bottom great, and they don't roll around in the boat. Just got back from a quick trip in Homer. Tide was pretty big, and we were basically trolling on the bottom, but pulled out a couple of 15 lb'ers. First fresh meat of the year!

    Wink Depends on your definition of round

    He means round on top, everything else is a flat side.
