A Texas rig is one of my favorite ways to fish a worm or creature bait. Has anyone had any experience with colored bullet weights? I've tried some black ones before but it didn't really seem to make much difference so I usually just stick with basic lead. Anyone out there using colored weights and seeing any advantages?

Thanks

No advantage, same as for jigheads - no advantage.

Probably not, but I always use black. Superstitious I guess. LOL

I dont think color of the weight matters. If you havent tried the tungsten you should. I know they arent cheap but they do give you more feel for the bottom.

Tungsten are definitely the way to go but make sure you put a sleeve in the weight. Even the "sleeveless" weights will cut your line in about 10 casts.

You can buy the academy brand of tungsten for much cheaper!

Check with Johnny at DJ Marine. He carries tungsten at very reasonable prices.

You can also use "bobber stoppers" Eagle Claw makes them. They protect your knot and can be moved up the line as a type of Carolina Rig too. My fishing buddy just told me about them two weeks ago - I'm sold on the idea. $1.99 for ten at Soddy Custom Tackle.

I painted my own. Blue nail polish with a second coat of silver flake nail polish.

I like the way you think!

I spray paint mine flat black. I don't know if it makes a difference or not. Something I've always done. Perhaps a confidence thing?

Anything that distracts a fish from the shape, color and action of a lure I would think reduces a lure effectiveness. I'd stay away from brightly colored weights for that reason alone.

I think its more of a confidence thing.. the majority of the time I'm using plain lead, no paint. I do have tungsten weights I use as well and they are either black or green pumpkin.. I don't think it makes a difference.
