saltwater leaders...

Recommended Posts

...so in the past couple of years ive been saltwater fishing ive seen the same old set up of leaders. Slightly modified but same. Mono filament, braid, steel, cable, single hooked, double hooked, all with the extra clip for a weight. So my question is, are their any other types of leaders or set ups that you all use for saltwater fishing and im talking about hook up some shrimp throw it out and grill up some fajitas until you see the rod holder tilt and the tip of the rod kiss the water.

I don't do much bait fishing live or cut but I see it done daily.  Most just use ordinary mono for a leader.  Egg weight above swivel, 3 feet or so leader then your hook, or pyramid sinker at bottom of leader then run a second leader off your swivel to your hook, you can do a trolley rig as well.  I'd shy away from steel unless you target barracuda.

For casting some use a fluoro leader but I have found it makes little difference especially on an outgoing tide.

well i just got back from a trip of fishing and i was catching decent not much trout just drum and few reds. Half way through i remembered about trout eating more suspended and thinking about it i realized its true catching trout always on the top leader never the bottom so i cut the bottom of a float off and slid it onto the top leader (slot? hook holder? idk you understand i hope) well i then crimped it in place and gave it a  shot and my numbers of trout and red shot up! no joke i used my dad brother in law and uncle as a independent variable in this experiment and they were just not catching trout when i was reeling them in! Got going good since the bottom rig was catching drum and the suspending hook was catching trout pulled in 4 doubles (1 with a trout and drum, 3 with red and drum) all keepers good day of fishing great find =) just a tip try it lemme know how it goes!
