Some of you have mentioned placing your trolling weight in a Bulb Squid.
I have decided to give it a try. Can anyone tell me what size Squid will cover the weights i.e. 48oz, 32oz, 24oz, 16oz,...etc.

Thanks, Tight lines and Slight seas!

Doesn't that just increase the risk of having a fish hit your weight/squid, and cutting the whole rig off?

Mine are rigged with 475lb cable so not worried of a bite off.
Trying not to scare off any potential predators with a lead torpedo.

I wouldn’t worry too much about scaring off any predators. Many times the weights are hit by wahoo thinking it is a fish. Some folks paint them white to blend in with the bubbles in the wake to minimize the weights getting hit.

I ended up taking my weights into a local tackle shop to make sure i purchased the right squid. I think the boone squid worked the best for me.... they were about 11" TL. I have three different color squid for each weight, pink/white, blue/white, and a green mix. They end up with plenty of teeth marks, but never had one cut off. Happy trolling!!!!
