I personally use McCoys Mean Green, because it floats. I use as light of a weight as I can get by with and still feel what is going on. Sometimes that is a 1/2, sometimes a 3/4 or in the wind a 1 or 1.25 oz. wt. I use the biggest swivels I can get my hands on, as it helps to add to the weight that I try to reduce. Over grass, I rig a 1/4 oz weight with a big swivel and basically split shot it. GREAT technique to get to fish over the top of grass, if that ever occurs. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
I do not use fluoro as it sinks, if you want to have your bait rise off the bottom, McCoys has silicone as one of the copolymer ingredients, that is why it makes suce great topwater line, too. Just some thoughts on C-rigging. OH, forgot the length issue. I use a longer leader in hot weather and a shorter leader in winter. Winter as little as 18-24", summer more like 4-5', so let the fish tell you what they want.
