Why Snakebite?

Snakebite Snap Weights provide an extremely accurate trolling technique for a wide range of baits.  Troll at practically any depth with crawler harnesses, crank baits, stick baits, cut bait rigs, and spoons - if you can troll it, you can snap weight it.


We've successfully tested our snaps on multiple different lines:


10-30 lb Mono

10-30 lb Braid

14-20 lb Leadcore

12-30 lb Fusion

How do they work?  With a simple one handed operation.  Our ergonomic design allows anglers to easily clip the weight on and off their line in any temperature.

Our dive charts are calculated at 1.25, 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 mph using 12 lb mono XT.  With our four different weight sizes, anglers can target a variety of depths in a variety of fishing conditions.

Confidence in your presentation depth is absolutely vital to any trolling program.

Why are anglers choosing Snakebite Snap Weights?

  • Snakebites have a very low profile, causing less drag in the water.
  • They don't fall off.  Traditional snap weights open from the top, which increase the chance of losing the snap if you hit the bottom or fight a big fish.  Snakebite Snap Weights open from the side, making it nearly impossible to lose it.
  • They don't slide in the water.  Set it and forget it.
  • Extremely simple to change the weight.  We use a Duolock snap instead of a split key ring, because we know those are a pain.
  • Precision Depth Charts for each size weight.  Trust our depth charts, they're spot on.
  • No pads.  No pads means no pads falling off.
  • Made in the USA.

The housing contains a high strength stainless steel spring.  By design, the spring is 98.5% percent relaxed inside the housing.  This design eliminates the potential for premature spring wear allowing thousands of uses before it begins to degrade.
