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
