When using live bait how close to the hook should the egg sinker be and what is the recommended weight of the egg sinker? Someone told me to just let the sinker rest on top of the hook but this didnt sound right to me. I have been using 2/0 J hooks but read that I may be using too small of a hook. Im going to do some river fishing at the dams and want to be sure Im setup correctly. Also, should I be using a swivel to add a leader line so my line wont get twisted from the live bait swimming around? I have been trying to figure out how to set my line up correctly on my own and I dont think Ive been doing it right. When river fishing at the dams is it best to let the line hang straight down off the side of the boat about a foot off the bottom?
