easy way to work this one out if in doubt chuck four ounce out

seriously though throw the biggest lead you can for better indication more than anything else.

if your using floats then it isnt the right approach to take though in the main, this is were a more ballanced approach comes into its own

allow me to elaborate if you use a bottom only float with a 4 ounce lead the pike has to move the line through the run ring (or smivel etc) to move the float. this is down to the fact the pike doesnt physically move the lead and in picking the fish updoesnt realy alter the weight ratio between fish and weight which in turn balances the float against the line tension put in at the rod end. on the same float and bait 2 swan shot (or whatever balances the set up) may be used when the pike picks the bait up the combined weight of fish and shot will be dramatically reduced thus giving indication on the float. for this same reason its why loaded floats are not a good choice in my opinion as the only rise a little having weight in the base well away from where the movment occurs

Couldn't agree more, Noodle. Loaded floats when float ledgering don't work properly. However, I have used them for fishing a suspended bait at close range.
