Hey guys, once again new to fishing and the forum. Just wanna know if i'm doing this right for blue fishing. My buddy fishes a lot and says blues bite from mid water to top. He showed me a few rigs but without a floater the bait seems to just sink to the bottom and it gets eaten by crabs or something. So i was thinking if i connect a floater to my swivel and then my steel leader with hook/bait i'll get my bait off the floor and floating close to the surface. I plan to use a sliding weight so when I cast out the weight goes to the bottom, the bobber brings my swivel/line up on top and the leader/hook will float close to the surface. Here's a pic of what I mean. Is this ok or are there better ways or am i wayyy off.
