I am using a 250# spool of blue gangion line to build halibut leaders for bait fishing with 16/0 VMC circle hooks.
After [searching "halibut leaders"] scanning 14 forum pages I didn't see anything specific on weight configuration preference.
I have paid attention to details during outdoor shows and have identified two basic weight configurations.
1) Some had the weight on the bottom of the set up with hook above. I expect with the hook configured above the weight it may foul up more.
2) Slightly more [at least in the videos I saw] had the weight farther up [this is how I've been doing it] with the hook hanging below.
Which configuration do our forum members think is best and why?
I'd like to keep things simple ~ not looking to add additional gear.
Thanks in Advance!
