Any suggestions on leader material and weight for a good Ozello.

Ted will tell you around 50 pounds for conventional tackle but keep in mind anything over 30 pounds is difficult to tie a good knot

I use a Rapala loop knot on my 50 and 60 pound leaders without a problem. Clinch knots are okay also but remember to reduce the number of turns you make as your leader size goes up. I also don't like using a uni knot when tying heavier leaders to lighter braid, use an improved albright or if you're seriously doing battle, double the braid with a bimini twist before tying.

Some of these suggestions are probably better than what I do, but I prefer to keep it to a knot I know well and have confidence in. I use 40# flouro and all Uni knots. I have had trouble with knots with 50#, but not 40#. Make sure you wet your knots with spit to lubricate them before you cinch them down. Going from 15# braid to 40# leader I use 7 turns on the braid and 4 on the leader. Personal preference is that I don't like loop knots since I feel the line gets hooked on the front treble hook more often. Check leader closely after every fish.
