I have tried all different kinds of ways to peg my weights with a TR. The bigger weights are no problem but I like to peg a small 1/16 oz weight to a trick worm, and it just doesn't work well. I have tried the rubber things but they are hard to get through the little weights and I feel like they weaken light 8 or 6 pound test. I have also tried gluing the weight to the worm which works but you have to be careful not to get it on the line. Any ideas?

Im not being a smart @$$ but if its a trick worm your throwin why not just put it on a shakey head instead of fooling with that peg?

Thanks guys I'll try that. I knew that was the way alot of people do it but I was thinking that it might weaken light line. Oh, and as for why I don't just use a shaky head. I like a texas rig better sometimes because it skips alot better and falls different. I also think that fish on lakes like keowee become accustomed to the weigh a shaky head sits on the bottom. It may not matter but thats just my theory.

the toothpick works-insert from the bottom and break but it's a pain to remove when your done--have a needle ready :wink: but at least the wood is soft and
don't think it damages anything...and like right now...it's the way to go on greenwood...shakey head "0" ..but killed the TR.. :thumbs_up:

But I thought you were just fishin' for 5 bites anyway? :P

The best thing is the tooth picks are free. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: They can be stolen from any of the finer resturants like Cracker Barrel :shock: :shock: :shock:

Next time you tie on a hook leave the tag end loose. Run it through the sinker and tie it back to itself. :-D

I like using rubber bands. Use a piece of extra line to pull it through the weight and trim the extra rube band. I have tried it and it works good. I also like the rubber bobber stops.
