    Tarpon rig suggestions

    Hey guys, I want rig a rod for tarpon and want to know what knots I should use to attach 60lb florocarbon line to braid 60lb braid? I'm on planning using this outfit with live and chunked bait with a knocker setup.

    I use an albrite for my floro to braid connections - never had a connection failure using it.

    Remember to "wet" the knot with a little bit of saliva before you pull it tight. I don't know the actual reason why, but it works to keep the knot tighter and smaller. Plus in my opinion it cinches easier

    I heard by wetting the line before you cinch it down, you don't "burn" the line.

    Surgeons knot is probally the easiest to tie and its strong. It's just a overhand knot that you pass threw 3 times
