I'm getting a couple big halibut leaders prepped for this summers trip up there. Like, 24/0 circle hooks with 500# mono crimped on. Trying to find a few heavy duty three-way corkscrew swivels so I can crimp a leader to one end, and have it ready to tie my line to the other end. Then I can just screw the appropriate size weight on, pin a big salmon head on & hope for the best.
Let's just say that I have high hopes this year of catching a big one, and I want to big rigged & ready for it.
