Default Newbie.. Hows my line set up

I have been fishing for years, but this will be my first year surf fishing.

I went out and got a 10 foot medium, Penn battle combo ( didnt want to spend to much as its my first season )

- I put 30 lb mono on it. I have that going to a barrel swivel, then 3 feet of 50lb leader to a snap for the lure. on my cast and retrieve pole

- My other set up ( bait and wait ) i am picking up friday.. probably the same combo pole. 30lb mono to a three way. A pyramid weight off one side of the three way, then a 50 lbs leader ( 3 ft) to a circle or j hook. Have not decided yet.

- i used all improved clinch knots, except for the hook . Hope thats ok.

Sounds good to me, the only thing I might change is having the leader be less strong than the rest of the line. That way if you get hung up and break the line, it happens with minimal loss.
