When you use a long lead on a harness to a snap weight, do good hooksets begin to be a problem?



Answer:
Slow trolling speeds and snap weights with long leaders can be tough. I like to let my rods or boards load up with the weight of the fish before I react to the hit. Then I either reel quickly instead of setting the hook or speed up the boat and use that forward movement to hang the fish. If the fish drops the spinner, I immediately drop back to him to try to tease a more solid hit. You’d be surprised how often this works! Good Luck and Good Fishing.
