Surface plug problems

755 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  aja962
Seems like when ever I go to a surface bait (walk the dog type plug) the nose tends to dive and the plug becomes sub-surface.
I am thinking it may be the wire leader/snap that causes this but I obviously do not want to loose an expensive plug by going "bare-back".
Would a heavy mono leader work instead of the wire and are these effective against bite-offs from our resident gators ?
thanks guys
Great site and forum...

I'd try using a mono leader instead of the wire leader.
