Lines vary a lot, but "generally" green blends better than clear

in crystal clear water. In stained water, smoke or purple/smoke

blends best. Although I no longer fish P-Line CXX, I always liked

the P-Line "moss green" in every type of water.

Green line on all my moving baits rods. Cranks, spinnerbaits, jerkbaits, etc.

Fluorescent line for all my plastics/jig rods, so I can watch the line easier.

I use moss green  15 lb. P-Line CX Premium on every baitcaster that I own.  I fish both stained and crystal clear lakes.  The real winner for me was fishing lake Erie using both true fluorocarbon and P-Line (which is a co-polymer) and getting the same amount of fish on both.

It seems as though everybody uses green over clear...... I may try that this year and see if i can tell a difference

Moss Green CXX works most anywhere.  I use clear fluorocarbon because, well, its fluorocarbon.  I have green braid on a couple of rods, but I prefer yellow or red for the high vis factor - especially for presentations where line watching is an edge.  Some think line watching is lazy, and that's fine, I'll keep doing what works.  If you're worried about the fish seeing the line, then just use a back or dark green Sharpie to color the last two feet or so.  The factory color wears off a bit anyway.  I also like to color 1/2 the spool of braided line to aid in visibility, and make a breakup camo like pattern.

Since most of the places I fish are slightly stained green I pretty much use CXX moss green or green tint on most of my spinning set ups.

I have Cajun Red on one B/C and Fireline Smoke on another B/C

In theory, clear line should be invisible to bass. In practice, clear line turns to white line and is actually more visible--at least to me. That's why I choose green.

Trilene 100% flouro seems to stay clear longer than most.

Daniel, fluoro does not absorb water, nylon does, reason why after a while if you are fishing with clear nylon line it turns milky due to the water absortion.

Have always used low vis Berkley green in both stained and clear water with no issues that I know of. Fish might know different but I cant tell it. Also use moss green in Power Pro Braid with leader 8-)
