Tying some rigs for bluefish. Heavy mono have 40-80 pound leader.
1/0 - 4/0 circle hooks. These will be for bait soaking
I can tie a good Snell knot. Also have and am good with crimps. Last time I was into blues had a couple of Snell knots get cut by teeth using 30 pnd leader and 1/0 hooks. Was catching 15-20 inch blues like crazy.
Any sugestions? I really like the way a snell knot holds the circle hook. But dont like bite offs.
It could have been sharks as well had a couple of good tussles with them that day.
