LB test for spinnerbait

Recommended Posts

I will be using a medium heavy rod and throwing only 3/8oz spinnerbaits and buzzbaits, fishing in shallow water 10ft the deepest. Heavy vegetation to moderate some structure, what would be the best pound test to use?

My 1/2 oz and less I'm throwing on 20# braid, over that on 50#.

I use 16 pound fluoro and never had a problem on spinnerbaits.  Buzzbait is usually straight braid 50#

   12 lb. Big Game. Spinnerbaits are 3/8 and 1/2, single blade, double blade and tandem. Just pulled in a nice one this PM on a 3/8 double Colorado.   jj

Open water around light vegetation and smaller spinnerbaits I'll go down to 10lb, otherwise I'm using 18lb. But that's really just because of the leader line I keep on me (10, 18, and 25). Ideally I'd probably go 15lb most of the time.

I agree! Or even 12 if the water is clear

Yup. 12 is more than sufficient also if you aren't worried about being dragged into any brush, etc.

15-20lb Big Game or Pline depending on the amount of cover.

12 lb mono or fluoro, I don’t like throwing spinnerbaits on braid, they don’t tent to be forgiving and repeated use can destroy a spinnerbait balance and even destroy the bend on the wire. I tend to destroy spinnerbaits so I don’t throw 3/8 oz and larger spinnerbaits.  I prefer the smaller ones, pond magic, 1/16 oz to 1/4 oz at the biggest. I fish a lot of skinny water. Depths of 6 feet maybe 8 feet max.

Another vote for 30lb straight braid.  If I could only have one line, this would be it.

Save the dough and use mono for spinner baits and buzz baits. I like 15lb pline, but most quality mono in the 12 - 17lb class will do just fine. Only time I use floro on my spinnerbaits is when I'm slow rolling them in late fall when the bites are subtle and i want them to run deep. Never used anything but mono on a buzzbait and I throw them alot, especially right now.

20lb straight braid all day, it is physically impossible to break off, as well as providing a more solid hook set due to the low stretch. Honestly though, it probably doesn't even matter that much which line you use.
