Similar setup to the captain there..
If using braid, (I hate braid), 20# rated PP or Suffix, its approx. a 2 foot loop with a 12 turn Bimini, Uni to Uni fluro leader, then a Rapala Loop knot to a lure, or a modified cinch knot to a hook.
When using striaght mono 10#, 12#, 20#, and the application calls for leader, its a Uni to Uni mono to Fluro, if no leader required its the Rapala Loop or Modified Cinch knot.
If straight mono 6# or 8# in freshwater, I use the modified cinch knot when targeting Peacock Bass to lure, a Rapala Loop to lure for most other fish, and a Palamar knot to worm hook. I find that when using light mono and a loop knot the peacock bass hit so hard the rapala knot breaks where the loop passes through the eye of the lure.
