Recommended Posts

On a setup of a 7'mh SPINNING okuma rod. Most of the worms will have weights added to them

I use 12lb. Last year was invisx and this year I'm going to try yozuri.

Agree with the 12 pound test option.

 

But what are the parameters on the rod?

 

You can go two pounds heavier with the suggested line test but that's about maximum.

 

Otherwise, 12 pound test works great. Heavier test if you are fishing around lots of structure or don't need the bait to go deeper.

And don't forget to check the line test on yorur spinning reel.

 

Some reels max out at 8 pound test.

 

Balance the line test and bait weight with both the rod and reel and you will be set.

This is a pretty heavy rod and the reel drag maxes out at around 10lb. The rod is like a broomstick with amazing sensitivety. It has a extra fast action.

The numbers on the rod and reel really don't matter. If it says 8/150, you can still use 10lb or 12lb, or even 30lb braid. As long as the drag is set properly, the reel is not in harms way.

I like 15lb Tatsu for mine, but that line won't handle well on spinning gear. The highest I'd use on spinning is 10lb fluoro, or maybe 20lb braid.

Bass size spinning reel I'd use nothing heavier than 8# mono, but I'm a braid user.  I use 10# on my pond set ups and 15# when fishing areas of heavier vegetation.

When I use a spinning set up for that it's 20# braid with a 12# floro leader.

The exact line combo I used all of last year, except it was on a med/f rod. When I was Senko fishing. MH/F when t-rigging.

Thanks for all the options guys. I will probably end up going with 20 or 15 pound braid with or without a fluorocarbon  leader. The ponds and lakes I fish are all pretty muddy and overgrown with hydrilla and lily pads.
