Is it true that when tying hooks to a leader, if snelled, the line should enter the hook on the barb side of the eye?
I was told this affects hook up ratio, especially for circle hooks. Most knots don't seem to need a certain direction when threaded through the eye, but a cohort told me it matters for snelling, such as on red snapper/chicken rigs. What's your opinion on this?

Ok,Moving to the area. I have a 20ft deepvee Mako with 150 Merc. Everyone says wrong boat for the flats, So let's talk off shore. In hawaii there were days you could go out more than 10 miles out, But not often. In Hawaii 10 miles puts you in the channel and in 1500 ft of water.
So I would like some input on how far and how safe. I have a 70 gal tank and great electronics and radios. I understand that it takes a good run to get out in deeper water. Yes?
