I use the white Off-Shore light releases off the big boards. As long as the line from the rod tip to the release is out of the water, these provide more than adequate hold to bury the hook. They are very simple to deploy and are reasonably priced.

I run the Scotty releases on my Otter Boats for all of my coppers.  I use the small plainner releases for coppers under 300' without flashers and the big ones for coppers 300' and bigger and coppers with flashers.  A little $ saving tip, look for the Scotty Double stacker releases and cut the line between them and add a shower curtain hook.

Love the #16 elastics,,,just like Mr. Keating  :)

Once half-hitched #16 is good for 10-12 color core once you get heavier go double, or if you're pulling serious amounts of copper go triple.

Never had any issues.

Hope this helps.

Cheers G.
