    Anyone have a good online site to buy terminal tackle? I do a lot of shark fishing from the beach in Texas and i use to purchase stuff from an online vendor but i can’t remember the website. I need to buy some large weight floro and also some large weight coated cable.

    Any suggestion would be great. Thanks.

    Tackle Warehouse. $10 next day shipping if you need it fast. I buy local when I can but they are the next best thing

    Catch all, Lindgren-Pitman, blue ocean tackle and bull buster will carry the heavy mono and crimps. For wire just go to Home Depot and get galvanized 1:16th wire. Back braid it or crimp it. I used 1,000lb snare swivels from eBay. Big enough to grab onto, sand doesn’t jam them up and long line clips work well with them.

    I searched the 1/16th wire at home depot, it says it has a breaking strength of 96 lbs? I guess I'm looking at the wrong wire?

    I am guessing that 96lbs is the working load, not the absolute tensile strength to failure, but honestly I don't know.

    Regardless, 96lbs of breaking strength is more then enough for any situation while shark fishing. Your drag setting for your reel will not even approach half that number.

    The thickness of the leader is more important because the leader's purpose is to prevent bite throughs. Your mainline is there to prevent breakages.

    Even then, you should be getting the hook set into the corner of the sharks jaw before it has a chance to bite through the leader.

    I still recommend the thick mono bite leader. Experiment with the leader types side by side while fishing and find out whether you prefer heavy mono or steel cable more.

    That’s load rating, it’s about 1/5th the breaking strength for legal reasons.
