    Well I dont know what your current setup is but here is mine.

    main line: 65lb POWER PRO
    12 inch 80lb steel leader with snap swivel for easy hook change
    3 - 8 oz no roll sinkers
    bead below the sinker to protect the knot
    knot tied with the polymar knot

    this has never failed me yet
