    Knotts or snaps?

    Hello.
    please advise this noob. Prior to going out my one time so far, I pre tyed some leaders w/ #4 baitholder hooks and a swivel . I used 12# fluro 12-18" long. Mainline is 8# mono that I tied 3/4oz egg, small bead and then a snap. The snap is like 40# test. I figured I could just snap the leader on and cast.

    Reading posts here, I realize my leader line is a bit heavy and these surf fish are more sophisticated than I gave them credit for. I guess I was still rigging for lake Huron walleyes, not surf perch

    So, besides getting some 4 or 6# fluro, do I have too much hardware with snap and swivel rattling around

    You can dump the bead and swivel and tie a back to back uni http://www.animatedknots.com/duncan/...om#ScrollPoint to your leader with a carolina keeper https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhCrbnCpUZs to hold back the sinker, and keep your leader short 6 to 12 in

    Can you flesh this out a bit for me? Back to back United? Carolina keeper?
    Thanks
