Usually for every 10 pound test line you can use 1 oz of weight. So for 20 pound you can use 2 oz. For 30# test line you can use 3 oz. weight. This is only a rough guide. People can do smaller or larger weight of the lure/sinker. But other factors also include the line, the rod, the reel, the aerodynamic shape of the lure, your casting ability, how you cast it, and how far you will cast it.
For example, with a 12 pound Yozuri hybrid mono test line on my 7 foot Lamiglas MH, moderate taper, baitcasting rod with an Abu Garcia 5600 C4 Mag reel, I can cast anywhere from a 3/8oz rapala to a 1oz kastmaster. I personally don't feel comfortable throwing a 2oz weight nor a 1/4oz lure on this setup but it can be done.
On average, how much does a full-size outdoor basketball court cost to construct?
that all depends what kind of fish u are fishing for. Panfishes usually are 1/32-1/64 ounce. bass are around 1/32-1 ounce jigs. weights all depend on what kind of fishing and what fish. trolling involves maybe just 1 ounce. weights really can be anything, just dont use to much of what is already only needed

Depends where you're fishing and what you're fishing for. In saltwater I've used anywhere from 1/2 ounce up to 2+ ounces on 12 lb line.
How can I wrap two eggs so they won't break in a backpack while hiking 5 miles and I can't use an egg carton.
Lure weight is really more dependent on the type of rod and reel you use. But I,m guessing that for 12 lb. line you would not want to go much lighter than 1/4 ounce.
