Default my setup

1 oz banks sinker (2 oz if the tide is running hard)
Have used egg sinkers but the with the banks sinker I can raise the rod tip just enough to lift the eye off the bottom and still maintain contact with the bait.
When I get a hit it seems like I can feel it better.

15 lb braid on the reel.
18 inches of 20 lb florocarbon to the hook.

And a #1 bronze kahl hook, I prefer Eagle Claw.

Fiddler crabs have been good to us this year.

my trick to to be sure to use a #6 hook and embed the hook completely in the bait to cut down on snags.

Default Sheep Head

So you have the weight on the bottom and a one in. leader with the hook on it. How far up is the hook from the sinker
