Really depends on what you want to use it for

I have toyed with idea a couple times for slow trolling live baits or dead swim baits

I was going to use a pancake weight on the basis that it would create less drag

I had my eye on one of the Scotty porta downriggers

Someone on here posted about doing this to fish for trout (at Kaiiwi lakes from memory).
