What Pound Test?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I am looking to buy two or three combos for my place in florida and am having a dilemma as to what combos and what lb test line i should use...

 

I am mostly fishing in winter/early spring down there, so i am not getting a heavy action rod.

 

however, i am getting a medium action, medium heavy action, and a good spinning rod.

 

What i am stuck on is what lb test BRAID for the medium heavy rod? Ill be throwing big worms, paddle tail swim baits and spinnerbaits. I feel like 30-40lb braid would be ok for swim baits and worms in grass, but is it overkill for spinnerbaits?

I usually only use 10lb test braid. I still don't understand going so heavy. I have never broken the line. Keep in mind though..I fish West Virginia...not Florida or Southern California.

Thirty is fine. When fishing thick vegetation though 50 or 65 is the way to go, but that's mostly a flipping/pitching/punching type of thing, or for frogs. That said, hard jerkbaits, punching, and frogs are the only things I use braid for, and for those it is the ONLY way to go IMO.
