Make as many loops as you want (I'm doing 2 for my flounder rigs) - sinker on bottom, swivel on top (I might simply do another loop since I usually rig a snap swivel at the end of my leader line (surf fishing). Lot of ways to do it. Good luck fishing!

It's 30 lb test line and it's simply for the rig. I setup like this: mainline - leader line (enough for at least 2 full wraps around my spool) + 2 rod length - at the end of the leader I have a sinker slider a bead a knot and a snap swivel - then will come the rig (for whatever I'm going to target and what actually swims by (my luck they're always different). So I have a number of these different rigs tied up when I go. The rig I'm tying there now has a 5 oz bank sinker on it - if I need to I can take that rig off, clip a pyramid on the sinker slider and a rig with a small bobber on the end of it and I have a fish-finder.

That's what I do.

Thanks Laker One - exactly what I do (I know you know how to do this - hopefully the younger guys will learn and post some fish caught):
