10kg mono to leader knot

As the title suggests, what are your favourite knots for 10kg mono to leader.

I have re-spooled a Tiagra 16 with 10kg mono, mainly for trolling up some tuna down south and then up north for mackies.

What rig do you recommend from the mono onwards ?

I was thinking of 60lb jinkai with an albright, to a hawaiian snap> tornado jnr for tuna.  60lb too heavy ?

And 100lb jinkai with an albright, to swivel >wire trace crimped to a good snap swivel> lure.

 

Interested in others set-ups

Bimini twist to wind on leader. 80-100 lb is spot on.

Im use the plait for ultra light (2-6kg) but 8kg and upwards I just use a bimini to get the double then a wind-on.

whats wrong with keeping it

Sun, 2011-01-09 11:06

whats wrong with keeping it simple in these instances?

say running main line to swivel to 1 meter 40lb trace to skirt for tuna or to swivel to single strand wire to lure for mackies

what reasons are there to run 80 to 100lb leader here???

Because when you towing a skirt around there is often a frisky little Black Marlin waiting to crash the party.
