whats your setup for the big cats?
i usally use a #7 hook with 60 spiderwirebraid and a 2 ounce bank sinker

first i thread the sinker on not tying it in a knot to keep it in place.
then i put on a couple pinch sinkers about a foot from the end of the line
the reason being i like to keep my spool open so the fish can just run with the bait without the drag of the sinker,seems to work better for me.
then i tie my hook on.
