This will be my first time fishing for reds and would like to know what is the best way to rig weights on the line. I will be using both casting rod and fly rod, both spooled with 30#. Also will bring a sink tip just to see what works best. Understand you need about 1/2 oz of lead on the Kenai, adjusting depending on current. Is that the correct amount to start with?
Is it best to use crimp on lead or have heard people mention that they like pencil weights better as they don't snag the bottom as easily. Do you connect main line and lead with a swivel and hook pencil lead to that?
Also going to go with a 1/0 circle hook to try to reduce snagged fish. Any thoughts on that?
