The best leader is the heaviest leader you can get bites on. Start heavy and then work down if you're not getting bites. There are many nights 200lb mono gets bit just as well as 40lb flouro, so why drop if you don't need to. Now day time fishing is a different story, but the same theory applies. I generally start with 100lb flouro in the day and then work my way down as low as 60lb if I'm not getting bites. I like to have chance when a bigger fish calls and the odds are heavily against you with a 60lb leader, nevermind anything lighter
