I like uni to uni to your braid 50lb mono with end loop for weight, dropper loop for hook and then a snelled gami octopus 3/0-4/0 wtih 40 lb mono about 8 inches with a knot.. Works for me but there are several other ways that work great too ...

Here is my two cents to add:

Bring both rods. Generally speaking if you are fishing shallower water and or more snaggy fishing grounds, the lighter setup (complete with 2/0 size hooks) may be the way to go. Conversely, whenever I fish deeper water and wrecks I tend to use the heavier setup.

Good luck,

Peter
