    Default windons

    Is is necessary to use windon leaders for offshore fishing. If so and your reel is loaded with mono what is the best knot to use to join them? I appreciate any advice I'm a rookie.

    Windon isnt necessary,but helpfull.weve boated alot of 100 to150# tuna without. As for knots id say a bimini twist or spider hitch.Probly alot of other opinions but it works for us.Good luck and tight lines

    Wind ons aren't necessary, but if you have an inexperienced crew it does get rid of the leadering step. For meat fishing I attach a 130 lb Spro Power Swivel to my mainline with a 7 turn Uniknot. I crimp the leader on.

    like darren said, 7 turn uni and crimp the leader.

    i run 80 test on my 50's and run all windons when im tuna fishing. it makes handleing fish somewhat easier, but it can turn around and bite you(windon stuck in the guides) if your not careful.
