Consider type of line and it's test strength as you read the review for each knot at this link. Good luck.

Hi! I'm always use 2, 2 and 3 oz mounted on a duo-lock snap==> http://www.luremaking.com/catalogue/catalogue-index/catalogue-items/duolock_snaps.htm

If i use mono, it's trilene knot if it's braided it's palomar.

hope it help!

Thanks for the info on the various knots.

I'll order some snaps when I place my yearly order with "Luremaking".
Stay safe  ....    Tom
