If you are tying to a ring hook, I like a Joe Miller knot. Very small profile.

The strongest knot does not make a difference. Just as long as the knot does not slip. The 130# is so you do not get chewed off.

Personally I tie a three turn uni and pull back the tag end to make a ring. Kind of like a small hangman's noose. I cut the tag end a little bit long in case it slips a little

If you are not crimping, a 5 turn trilene. The reverse version I find easier to tie.

The Joe Miller is excellent also but sometimes it doesn't cinch down right. I know that's me and not the knot.

Lot's of choices, let your skill set pick. Everybody seems to have a knot they tie better than the others, go with that one!

Just don't tie a "1-2-3 knot"!

I learned how to crimp on my last trip, but I've only fished crimps on my kite rigs. I may revisit that idea before the next time I chase cows.

For me, though, nothing beats an Erwin knot.
