Non Steel Leader?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to a known pike lake later this week. I'm targeting bass. Anything I can use to "pike proof" my setup without using a steel leader? Something like heavier mono or braid, flouro maybe?

I've used Tyger leader in the past to deal with Barracuda while fishing swimbaits for Sandbass.  I've had good luck with it.

You can try the Titanium leaders. They're expensive, but they don't kink-up.

Good luck. Personally, I wouldn't trust any fiber to be pike-proof. If you wanted to test a line, I'd run it over a serrated knife blade. I don't know how similar that is to pike teeth, but I would think it would offer a clue as to how the line would hold up.
