General Line Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Using the following guide for my 6 combo arsenal what size line should I use for each?  Please keep in mind that I'm in the adolescent stage as far as bass fishing knowledge and I'm working on a budget.  I pretty much have the combos mapped out--I think, I just need some advice for the finishing touches. 

 

1. Flipping, pitching, punching, frogging and swimbaits 

2. Topwaters and jerkbaits

3. Crankbaits

4. Texas rigs and jigs

5. Spinnerbaits and swimming jigs

6. Power spinning

1.- 15lb fluoro (mono)  or 50lb braid (best option is braid)

2- 10 fluoro for jerkbaits,  

3. 12lb fluoro

4. 15 fluoro

5. 15lb or 12lb fluoro

6. no idea what you mean by power spinning but lets say 8lb for a spinning rod 10lb for baitcaster

Because you are working on a budget I am going to avoid brand recommendations.  Here's my 2-cents.  

 

1. Flipping, pitching, punching, frogging and swimbaits  - Braid 40+ lb test

2a. Topwaters - 15 mono at least

2b. Jerkbaits - 10-12lb Fluoro

3. Crankbaits - 10-12lb Fluoro

4. Texas rigs and jigs - 15-20lb Fluoro

5. Spinnerbaits and swimming jigs - 15-20lb Fluoro

6. Power spinning - Assume you mean Spinning Rod here.  10-15lb Braid.  6-10lb Fluoro leader as needed.

 

Note:  I throw Jerkbaits and Cranks on the same rod.  That might help you here.

Spinning both power and finesse, not that I know what is meant by either, 10-15# braided line.  No trolling line out, no line treatment needed, with more than enough line strength.

Yo-Zuri or P-Line copoly #15 for everything but punching and frogging I use #40 Spiderwire Ultracast.

Thanks for all the suggestions.  I now have a good foundation to begin.  

 

I should have made more sense for #6.  The spinning setup is for tubes, grubs, shakey heads, drop shots.

 

So no leader is needed with braid for the flipping/pitching rig?
