Line Suggestion For My New Set Ups?

Recommended Posts

I just got a 6'6" MH FAST and a 7' H FAST baitcasters. I am going to use the 6'6" for jigs, weighted soft plastics and also some spinnerbaits. The 7' H will be used for topwater frogs, heavier jigs and going into heavy cover. One of the two will also be used for rat-l-traps. I want to use braid alone and a flouro leader in certain cases. Any recommendations of line strength based on what I said I will be using the combos for? I fish in a lot of weeds but also by rocks, which is when i'll use the flouro leader.

You could honestly use 50# PowerPro (12# equivalent) or another braid for both setups. If you want, though, you could step up the H to 65#.

Flouro leader 12-20# depending on the sparsity or density of the rocks and how much abrasion resistance you will need.

Connect them with an Alberto knot and you'll be all set.

And as far as the rod is concerned, that power line will not put too much pressure on the line if the drag is set properly?

I wouldn't use braid to fluro whe power fishing, everything about that scenario just sounds bad.

 

Try out some Yo-zuri hybrid, the breaking strength on this line is way past its diameter, its very low in stretch and abrasion resistance also. It is also UV resistant, and you can feel your bait working good. For the jig rod and frogging yes stay with the braid.
