So, follow-up question to my original question:

Am I picking up from some of you that you tie your fishing line to a swivel and then tie a heavier piece of mono with one end on the swivel and the other end tied directly to the lure?

Basically, I'm trying to see at this point with my follow-up question how many people feel it's a problem to have a swivel connected directly to a lure.

For Trout an Red fish I'd use 30-40 lbs mono leader, something toothy you'd want to use a wire leader 40 lbs coffee brown works well for Spanish I'd say that's all you really need for chucking lures out

I use 6' of fluorocarbon for REds and Specks. 20 or 30 on Reds, and 15 on Trout. The 6' means I don't have to replace the leader near as often, you get a lot of reties with that length. I use the fluoro, as often the water in Mobile Bay can get gin clear in late summer and fall. I don't use a swivel, I tie directly to the Power Pro with a J Knot. I get great results with it, and the knot is very small, and casts without problem.

I tied the line/leader together with a uni to uni knot... never had it fail... only time I will use a swivel is on a carolina/live bait rig to keep the sinker off the bait, and a spoon to keep line from twisting up too bad...
