Floats Sinkers and bobbers:
Pieces of plastic, cork, or other material that floats are attached to fishing line above the lure and hook to suspend them in the water so they attract fish near the surface.
Pieces of metal, rubber, or other material that readily sinks are attached to the fishing line above the lure and hook to take them down into the water or to the bottom, to attract fish that feed in deeper water.
The numbers that you see on sinkers are actually their weights.
