    Agreed, and it also help to use a smaller bit first and then the size I want.

    I run 4 oz mushroom weights on a Texas rig, my decoys stay out in shallow rice water all season. The mushrooms hold better then egg weights when it is windy. If I was setting up and picking up daily I’d run egg weights because the straw doesn’t get caught on them as easy.

    What weights are you guys using for Higdon Battleships (foam filled) on big water. I don't want to chase these. Oh, by the way, I got some new Battleships...

    I don't have any battleships but I'd use the same weights as I do for everything else. My buddy has some I think and he uses the same weights, matter of fact I used his mold.

    My egg weight mold came in today. Can’t wait to pour a few more of these.

    Thanks man. How are you getting the decoy line inside the lead weight? Looks sweet.

    There's a hole all the way through. Just feed the line through and tie a knot in the end. It won't pull back through. Only way I'll rig decoys.
