Help On All Around Baitcaster Line. Is Fluoro Bad Idea For Topwater Baits?

Recommended Posts

I fish from kayak with only one baitcaster. I use it mainly for spinnerbaits or topwater. I want try a soft frog, is fluoro a bad idea? Any all around line you recommend?

I guessI need to try braid but doubting my skill level with it on baitcaster even though I haven't tried it yet.

Thanks!

Try a spool of Yo-Zuri Hybrid. Most guys like it, some don't. Either way, it's am inexpensive experiment.

I recommend #6 on spinning tackle, #12 for baitcasting gear.

Braid handles better than flouro and you don't need to thrash the line after a birdsnest. For anything involving soft frogs I would recommend braid in 50# and up.

I'd recommend braid. Fluoro sinks. Braid floats and will be good for spinnerbaits, most top waters and frogs.

If you only have one setup then braid is gonna be your best bet.

I have been a little intimated by braid on baitcaster because I read where it's takes more skill but I have gotten good with mono so maybe I need to face my fear and try it.

id recommend a copoly line. it has different properties as there is no "one" real good line for everything, you can use flouro on a topwater, it does sink, pulls the nose of the bait in the water and impedes the action of the bait. if your gonna use braid for all applications you have to take into account the no stretch factor, maybe a softer rod when using certain baits so the rod makes up for the lack of stretch using braid, there is no right or wrong answer here but only mere experiences that we have had that work best for us, depending on size topwater ur planning in using, dont let anybody tell you that you cant use flouro. i use flouro on .25 oz poppers, my sexy dawgs, xpods, z-pops, n spooks. PM me for the trick! lol dont want to let it out on here since these other guys havent found it yet. Might see one of them n a tourney where the topwater bite is on!:)
