Just wondering what kind of knot everyone uses when using 150++ mono? Or do you just crimp it. If you do use a knot what kind?

100+ is going to be a crimp or snell for me

Thanks for everyone's input. I usually don't use that heavy but a few weeks ago I hooked a Bonita (7-8lbs) while vertical jigging and the biggest Aj I have ever seen in my like followed it so I dropped it back in the water and the Aj swallowed it in one gulp. He was taking all my line at full drag so I added more pressure and he broke me off. I was so excited I had to get help to tie another jig on b/c I was shaking so bad.

I've used a uni knot and melted the end a bit so it could not slip through.

Knots

I use a uniknot up to 100#, never have a problem with knots not holding. Also use it to join 2 lines seems to work well for me.
