Hey guys
fishing season is on its peak and we are having lots and lots of barracuda these days.....
day before i went unprepared and lost 2of the buggers as i was not using any leader....... so i bought wire leader and this time i went prepared..... still i lost 3 or more.... i was using 12inch of wire leader still it was initial first run and a clean cut.....
i was able to land only one and that was on a 100lb mono as leader.... after landing the fish i tried to remove the hook and during that time the fish just closed it mouth and the 100lb mono cut like butter with hot knife....

last year i got a barracuda without a leader and that was sheer by luck if i see what is going on from last 2 days......

please suggest me a proper way to use leader (wire or mono or florocarbon)......

Does your wire leader have a big shiney chrome swivel at the end of it ?

If so, it sounds like the barracouda are attacking that and cutting your line.
A bit of mat balck paint might be a quick fix.

Firstly,

Were you using lures or live bait?
Secondly, the wire leaders you are referring to are they the ones you get them ready made with swivel and snap? Please explain your setup that should help us assist you better. Ideally speaking the barracudas on the shoreline dont tend to grow bigger then a meter and a 40 lb wire leader is good enough for them. When you are saying your leader snapped it worries me as what I have noticed that they tend to jump and turn and twist when hooked and this could cause the leader to snap but it is highly unlikely if the leader is new.

Let us know. Try to use yozuri golden red minnow as these fish tend to strike something that is shinny and even injured live bait (ballyhoo)

Thanks Dezz for the suggesstions...
i will try it next week......

Keyur:
there is no problem with the wire leader.... its not the leader that is getting cut or the knots that are getting opened up.......
my wire leader gets a bit tangled up with the main line while casting... so there is something wrong in the setup..... this is my first time preparing wire leader.....
all the time it was the main line (20 lb mono) which was getting clean cut.....

i want to know the proper setup so that no point of time while casting my leader gets tangled with the main line......

i saw a company prepared leader and going to prepare the same this week and see the results......

the other big problem is crabs.....
how to save the bait from the crab as once the bait is dead then the chances of strike becomes less.....
as all my strikes were on live bait..... i want to know how to save bait from crabs?
thanks

i said cheap as in money wise not to compromise with the quality......
for a small bag of crimps (100pcs or less) he was asking like 15$...
i dont want to compromise on the quality.......
and as there are great minds on the forum that have innovative ways of finding solution i thought i will ask about a homemade solution.......
thanks for the info......
im aware that in an electrical shop its going to be a lot cheaper but i could not find the right size
i will ceheck once again
