Never heard of the pinch pad trick. Thanks.

You can also set the reel drag so that it "clicks out" line while trolling, and then attach a pinch pad type release on the line between the reel and the 1st guide on the rod. The pinch pad release is tethered to the base of the rod holder. The pinch pad should be attached so that minimal force is required to pull it from the wire line. When a fish hits, the wire is pulled through/off the pinch pad, and the reel drag is set light enough that the initial hit and run can be survived. The pinch pad falls off the line, but is caught by the tether. 
 
There are lots of differing opinions on snubbers. I like them.

I find tying knots in some brands of heavy fluorocarbon to be a nightmare.   Hi Seas fluorocarbon has given me the best results for knot strength.  For mono, Big Game clear.

snubbers and make sure your drags are almost clicking every once in a while, also reel maintenance, I have used scotty releases on the wire above the reel to stop the clicking
