What line for big swimbaits

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I was wondering what kind of line you all use for 6-10 inch swimbaits. Do you use straight mono? Or do you use braid to leader. Also what lb test?

Length isn't as much a concern as the weight. 20-25lb Pline cxx is a common line used. Matt Allen of Tactical Bassin uses braid to leader and seems to have no problem landing big fish or losing baits. As for exact sizes of lines used I don't know.

Pline Xtra strong or Big Game, 15-25 pound depending on the bait.

20-25lb mono or fluoro. NEVER use braid to leader. The stretching during casting and hooksets will weaken a short 2-3' leader and cause it to break off eventually.

15# to 30# PLine PF (Big Game okay too) depending on weight.

20 lb copoly isn't bad I've found. I would never run straight braid on swim/glide baits.

20# P-Line CXX is all I need.  I rarely go above 3 oz. baits.

I have settled on 25 lb Sunline Armilo Defier Nylon for all my swimbaits between 2 oz to 7 oz.
