Thanks @BilletHead.  For a fly guy you post a lot of bait fishing videos😁. Never heard of slinky weights but will make a bunch after seeing this video. We don't  have an abundance of suckers here in MD but that setup should work for lots of different native species😉.

Slinkies were popular in Washington for steelhead and salmon fishing.  I used pencil lead myself, get some hole punch pliers, you can snip off whatever length of lead you need, flatten one end, punch a hole in the flat end and hook your swivel up.  Snaggier than the slinky, but a lot easier to make.

I would use a baitcaster too, that way you can thumb the spool and let line out to let your stuff slide down with the current.

That was enjoyable.   Thanks.
