Default Fishing help

I got a Emmrod fishing rod with 10 lb test line to fish in local small lakes. The reason I bought one of these its easier for me to carry.

My question is what size weights (split shot and sinker) should I get. I bought a 1 ounce sinker and size 2 split shot weights but, wondered if my line would snap or snag and snap all the time with these.

So I thought I'd shout out to someone here for help

Thanks

I would suggest you read up on fishing on online forums or get a book. Your question is really broad. Or go with someone that knows what they're doing and is willing to help. As to your question, I don't use split shots when I fish for trout.

10 lb line is way to heavy use 4-8 lb the sinker alone is fine for bottom fishing ( sitting in a chair) with bait also a sinker and split shot is too much the sinker alone should be fine, you should get some lures and swivels for small lakes like spoons and spinners just don't let them hit bottom on the retrieve you will lose them also get some flies and a bubble ( slow retrieve ) you never know what they want just have a good selection.

go with a guide. Not only will he show you his honey holes, but he will show you how the correct fishing methods.

but a 1oz sinker is quite heavy for a 10# test. What type of rod are you using? heavy?

You need an ultra-light sinker. 9-foot 5-weight rod is the current default choice for most trout

Carolina rig works good for the bottom. Just google it. Sometimes it helps to inflate the worm is that is your bait.

Don't think trout feed too much off the bottom though.

I'd float the worm from the surface before I'd sit it on the bottom. If I'm fishing for fun (catch/release), I normally prefer artificials though. Trout usually don't swallow them like worms so they're much easier to unhook without killing.

Had pretty good luck with Acme Kastmasters on rainbow lately. Or the good old Thomas Cyclone when nothing else seems to work.

10lb test might be a little too much line, also. I usually don't go over 6. I use a crappie rig type setup. Bass casting weight on bottom, a hook (size 10 or 12) about 6-8 inches up. Add a second hook 6 in or so further up. You really don't need a lot of weight. For me it depends where I'm fishing. Smaller weights for smaller bodies or water, a size or two up for larger bodies. Weights are cheap so buy a variety and use what works best. All of this really depends on the size and specie of trout you're fishing for.

What do you call this? I have searched but, can't find them.

Its for trout bait fishing

It has a red marble on top and two leaders with fish hooks attached and a swivel at the bottom for the weight. So all you need it to tie it to your line and bait up.
