With shorter leader the hook is much closer. Especially for those that don't let the rod load up but instead, set the hook by swinging for the fences with every bump they feel. Only time will tell.
    They thought they made it better by shortening it but it's gonna be way worse then they thought. A weight with a hook that close is really snagging now

    Back in the mid to late 90's, when I used to fish the outlet. All I ever used to measure my leaders was my wing span, which is close to 6ft. I didn't have any problems hooking fish. My 2 cents.

    I think you'll need to wait and see, hard to judge when there isn't many fish in the system yet.
    Fishing, it's cheaper than therapy!
