Fishing line?

Recommended Posts

I need a few suggestions for fishing line.

I was fishing some sort of berkly braid or fusion this past season and I liked it but I would like to see what you guys think is the best.

Here are my specs...I fish light - medium spinning tackle. My go-to bait is soft plastics and/or shaky head technique. I also fish cranks and spinnerbaits if the mood strikes me.

I think I need a new age braid or fusion becuase where I fish I catch a lot of pike almost 1 out of every 5 fish is a big pike and they will bite my line off and I lose the lure if I don't have a strong braid or fusion on...I am fishing for bass so I clearly do not want a steal leader on there.

I am looking for sensitivity, low visibility to the fish, good knot strength, low diameter...and hard for pike to bite through...cost is not an option and ideas?

I wouldn't trust any filament when it goes up against a pike's teeth. I've had 15" pike or pickerel cut 15# braid like a hot knife through butter. Maybe 65# would be resistant, I don't know. I've also never seen any evidence that a thin 6" steel leader deters strikes from bass.

I take two week long trips to canada for walleye and pike each year and I use either powerpro, sufix, or fireline and have never had a trouble with them breaking off, I never use a leader.
