Keith White has written various encyclopedic pieces on weighting soft plastics with nail weights etc, if you google it you'll find some stuff.

I personally have used screw in weights on the belly (Nogales Body Shot
) , and also have a tin of tungsten putty which you can put on the shank, eye or the bend of the hook to add a couple of grams very easily. Expensive, but reusable, and lasts a long time.

Hi James
Only started messing around with sluggo's at the end of this season really - had a couple of fish on them. Only used them unweighted so far. The idea of being able to present them straight and slowly sinking (either in the current or on a slow retrieve) really makes sense to me though, so spending the winter tinkering!

i like your idea of slowly sinking soft plastics on paper it sounds great but i will have to spend some time experimenting with weights for specific lures !

Weighted worm hooks work well for this type of presentation
