Squish in the weight. You can experiment with different weights in different places.

Step 4: The Third Part

Tie the line to the hitch hiker and tie the other end to the hook, And stick the hook through the minnow. The line in beetwen the hook and the hitch hiker has to be the right length. Look at the picture to know how much slack to leave.

I'm not sure what that hitch hiker thing is, could you explain a bit more? Do you get them in a tackle shop?
