I have a 8ft medium heavy Jimmy Houston cat hunter pro DX spooled with 25 lb Berkeley trilene big game solar collector with a sinker slide I made with a snap swivel attached to a barrel swivel with a bead underneath it and a wire rig that I already had I know y'all say mono is better but I used what I have heres a photo of the rig

On the sinker slide be on the look out for some small clear tubing that will barely fit through the swivel and then put your line through it... everything looks good and i know folks that just use the swivel....i dont like it rubbing on my line un-protected...especially in the winter time when big uns are more active breakdance


If it ain't broke don't fix it...but go ahead and work on it anyway.....

Why are you using wire? You shark fishing? You're wasting money on those leaders that you could be using on better tackle.....
