Why do some spinnerbaits retrieve on one side

hi guys, Pretty self explanatory, I was just wondering if fishing with a 1/4oz jighead is too heavy for flathead and other species? I have been having trouble casting 1/8th jigheads more than 15-20m, and I would prefer not to spend money on a new packet of 1/6oz jig heads. Cheers If targeting flatt...

So what did it mean by a 2lb "bream". Is that a boney bream, silver perch or maybe a yellow belly?

Whats the best knot to use when tying your mono line to a swivel?...(I've always used a 1/2 blood knot, but they aren't 100%)
