KB,
If I've got the time to do it before I get to the pier I like to take the extra effort to tie about a 10 inch double line with a spider hitch then connect 18 or 20 inches of 40lb Trilene Big Game with a no name knot, then connect to the Gotchya with an 8 turn improved clinch.

Heaver,
The main reason I use the small double line is because I just have more faith in that leader system than I do some of my other knots. I have used the back to back uni and various others but just never had the same confidence in them. Just one of those fishermans quirks I reckon

Windhawk,
I've used that one myself but heard it reffered to as the Homer Rhode loop knot. Different strokes I reckon. When you say you use a "shock" leader do you use a real shock leader, one that wraps around your spool to prevent break offs? Curious
