Fishing Line help?

Postby GaryBHunting » Thu May 10, 2012 2:10 pm

It's been a long time since I bought spinning reel line. I'm re-spooling 2 ultralight reels and one med weight spinning reel. The first two will be 4lb and 6lb and the med will be 10lb test. I like the idea of seeing the line above water (eyes aren't what they use to be) but don't know if it really "dissappears" in water. I have had bad experience with braided line and prefer either mono or fluorocarbon . .I think. Any suggestions?

Thanks

All I use is six pound fluorocarbon.. That.. I beleive big fish can feel the vibration on anything bigger.. Plus fluorocarbon doesn't freese..

If you are going to use Floro then I suggest P-Line or Segaur. Best Floro period. But, if you dont fish that often I would look at a co-polymer which is 50% cheaper and just as strong without sacrificing diameter. I would go with the P-Line CX co-polymer for $7.99 for a 250 yard spool. better sensitivity and clarity than mono, better diameter per Lb Test than floro.

thanks, sounds like a good suggestion. I usually fly fish but every once in a while I like to just drown a few worms.

As long as the line is wet thats all that matters! I Bass fish and fly fish primarily but have been known to soak a few for cats or stripers on the delta. Hope you get into 'em! get some pictures up! nothing like fish porn during the off season.

I don't normally post to the Nevada hunting but I personally would say no to fc line because it has incredibly great memory. It's great as leader line but really causes line twist on a small spinning reel. Go with a known line engineered for spinning reels like stren extra limp or trilene. Look for "low memory". You can always add a leader in fc if you think the fish are spooking from the line. On another note, I would suggest stretching your line for the 1st 20 yards if you start getting line twist. Fc works great for bait casting or mooching reels but the technology is not there yet with lighter spinning reels.

I think pline is the best line out there hands down. Very abrasion resistant and casts extremely well. Whe. You spool your reels make sure that the line rolls off the spool and have a little bit of tension on it. If you lay the spool on its side put ten turns worth of line on then flip it over and do another ten untill your reel is full. That keeps twist out of your line
