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.

What goes first sinker or hook?

Attach a sinker to the bottom loop using one of your fishing knots. Tie a hook to each of the two middle loops. Lastly, tie your main line (or the line running from your fishing reel) to the top loop.

How far should your hook be from your float?

Set the float first

At the moment you should have a float on the line, fixed at about 18 inches (45 cm) up the line from the hook. If you swing the line out into the water now, the float will either lay flat on the surface or perhaps poke out of the water several inches.

How far should the weight be from the fishing hook?

Depending on the depth, the distance from the hook to the weight needs to be adjusted. For shallower water, it is recommended to place your hook three to six inches above the weight. For deeper water, the hook can be adjusted to nine inches from the weight to no more than a foot and a half because of the leverage.

Can you set the hook too hard?

The hook set with a treble hook should be firm but not vigorous. Setting the hook too hard can pull the bait free or destroy the mouth of the fish—both of which are not ideal.
