The last couple mondays, I have fished Congress lake and started using a 1/16 bullet weight with my worms and lizards to get them down to the bottom faster. Interestingly, my line has broke more often in the past 2 weeks than it ever has. I would have gotten a few more nice fish if it didn't break. I lost what looked like a 4 or 5 lber because of this. I think the weights are nicking, or thinning the line. I use 8lb test P-Line. I also sometimes put a tiny bullet split shot weight as a stopper for the main weight. Is there an inherent problem with bullet weights? Is there a particular kind I should use? I was using lead. Do you reccomend the "toothpick" trick instead of the letting the weight slide free? Any help will be appreciated.
