The weight is relative to the speed. The faster you go, the heavier the bottom bouncer needs to be to keep it on the bottom. I typically use a 1.5 to 2oz bouncer. If you find you are not on the bottom when trolling, make sure your speed is correct. For Walleye, around 1mph (give or take a few tenths) is a good speed. If the speed is correct, try letting out more line. If still no luck, try a heavier bouncer. Also remember that the type of rod and line can make a difference on what weight to use. You don't want a heavy weight with a very light rod & line. Good luck to you
I think I have the weight thing down, now lets talk about speed. I have a minn kota 65# thrust. My boat is a 19' aluminum,the foot pedal has 1-10 for speed level how do I break that down to 1 or 1.5 mph?
