fishing line


I like to use the lightest line possible. This means 6 to 8lb mono as a rule but never over 10lb. With braided line you can use a heavier lb test because it will be a smaller diameter than mono. Fluorocarbons are good for leaders and making lures but they have tremendous memory and will twist. Always use a good quality swivel, preferably the ball bearing type, but NO buck chin cheapos.
