It’s really important that you’re matching the weight of your lure to your rod’s recommended weight.

Matching Your Lure Weight To Rod Rating [VIDEO]
Typically your rod’s weight rating is listed on your rod.
This will tell you how heavy and how light of a lure package you should be using with that particular rod.
Don’t use a rod that is too powerful or too light for the lures you’re using.
This will make it not as easy to cast!
And your performance will be much better if you’re using the correctly weighted lure and rod combination.
Knowing the weight of your lures PLUS your hooks is the weight you should be focused on.
You need the weight of the total package: lure plus hook.
Here’s an example:
A 1/16 oz Owner Weighted Twistlock Hook plus a Slam Shady 2.0 paddletail weighs 1/4 oz.
So you should be using a rod that is rated for 1/4 oz, not 1/16 oz.
