have you had a huge problem missing bites with the spider weights? i've been using the sputnik weights when conditions have been tough and i dont really see much action and the bait generally always gone (3/4in cut mullet/whiting).
Is this a common issue with the weights? Theres definitely a few other things it could be...
1) im not in the right spots and bait stealers are pillaging me (i'm new to surf and haven't found reds/target fish yet)
2) the rod i use the sputniks on is not long and is really heavy (from garage sale, trolling rod i think so not idea for surf; Penn0711) so maybe it just lacks sensitivity -> other option i have is Penn battle II 7ft but haven't tried sputnik on it
3) hook issue? been using 2/0 circles mostly but have rarely used 4/0Originally posted by tigersanddawgs
