fill up paper cups w/ cement and put an eye hook in them. they work great. if you wnat to go heavier you can even use coffe cans.
if you dont want to use cement, fill up 2 liter bottles, or milk jugs with sand or dirt. pretty much anythign will work

i use coffee cans filled with cement for my longlines and trotline. 2 pounds should be plenty even on a windy day on the bay.
