    It depends but I'd say a couple foot for the weight and another foot for the bobber, depends how deep you want to fish. Or you could take a separate piece of line and tie it to the eye of the hook and let it hang below as far as you like.

      Depends on what depth you are fishing, best suggestion is to experiment and adjust based on the depth of the water.

        about 5 or 7 inchs from the hook and about 1/2 an inch a part for two med size sinkers.

          try your bobber about 24" above the hook, set you sinker in between

              What are you fishing for? General, I'd say 6in. on sinker, about a foot on the cork.
