How do you set up a beginner fishing line?
Start with an arm’s length of 30- to 50-pound monofilament fishing line as a leader. Tie four 2- to 3-inch dropper loop knots 3 to 4 inches apart. Attach a sinker to the bottom loop using one of your fishing knots. Tie a hook to each of the two middle loops.
How should I arrange my fishing line?
- Organize by species. One of the most basic fishing tackle storage ideas is to group all tackle that you would use for a particular species together.
- Use adjustable dividers.
- Separate soft plastic baits.
- Use small trays for hooks and small tackle.
- Keep line in side pockets.
Should sinker be above or below hook?
A sinker is a weight attached to your fishing line about 6 – 10 inches above the hook. It forces a hook with bait to sink and keeps your bait down near the lake or river bottom, where most fish swim. For most shore fishing, pinch on one or two small split-shot sinkers on your line. Use only enough to sink the bait.
