As a practical matter, I'd use the fishing weights tucked in as close to
the boom as possible to keep the additional wind load down.  In fact if
the boom is hollow, you could stick the weights inside and not increase
the wind load at all.  As long as the metallic counterbalance is not
actually touching any elements you will be fine.
