With a 2 oz weight, you can use a 2:1 ratio. 30 feet back equals 15 feet down; 50 feet back is 25 feet down, etc.

Looking for some tips on trolling set ups for new boaters. I fish the piers often but don't have any dipseys or down riggers for going out in the boat. Will an egg sinker work for keeping spoons down while trolling? cranks? Please PM with any advice, thanks in advance and tight lines.
