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.
How far up do you put a weight on a fishing line?
Attach the sinker about 2 ft (0.61 m) above the hook.
Leaving space between the sinker and hook helps your bait float up so it’s more visible to fish. Measure up from the top of your hook and pinch the line so you don’t lose your place.
