New Line for New DropShot Wacky Rig

Recommended Posts

Need suggestions for line to put on my new "finesse" set up.  Going on a new Mojo Wacky Style spinning rod with a Shimano Sedona 2500FD (another story) that I want to use for Wacky rigs, drop-shots and some finesse fishing.

I bank fish 98.8% of the time.  Mostly very light cover although a few spots have spome laydowns and only one has much of a rocky bottom to speak of.

I have had experience with P-Line, caught a 33" across snapping turtle on a spinnerbait no less using 15# Floro-Clear on a medium action baitcast rod that never broke off.  Also tried some Sufffix Seige and Elite as the season went on, 6# and 12# if I recall.

Just looking for suggestions and opinions. I am new to these forums, but will admit I knew there was ALOT of information, but the knowledge you folks share has made me a much better angler and has given me an incredible appreciation for equipment and tackle.

Yo-Zuri Hybrid.  6-8# (not sure what your rod is rated for so I'm guessing).  This line is low stretch, plenty supple, transmits sensation very well, has super abrasion resistance, and is UV resistant as well.   Yo-Zuri also breaks well over its rated test.

Six-pound flouro line.

Yo-Zuri Hybird or Ultra Soft.

If you can't use either, try any six-pound flouro.

Run it through Kevin VanDam's Lure and Line Conditioner and spray the line on the spool every so often as you are fishing.

Sounds like a nice set up.

So what's the story behind the 2500 Sedona?  :D

I had my heart set on the Stradic, did tons of research and had made up my mind.  I go to the Chicago Outdoor Show where one huge hall are tackle shops.  (Spent WAY too much money, but I will say there were alot of folks following me around wanting to pet the cute monkey, still don't get that??)  Went to MikLurch and had the 09 Stradic in my hand for $99 without a spare spool, which I was positive I was supposed to receive.  The reel right next to it was the Sedona and i start loooking at it talking to the Reel Dude.  Everyone of the major specs between these two reels were the same, bearings, line propulsion, etc.  He looks me right in the eye and says he knows of literally no difference other than $40.  "If ya got cash money, I'll get it fer ya fer $45."  I happened to have cash money.

I am sure there are differences greater than I see, but for the "same" reel for half, I took the plunge.  Hoping for softer water in the center of Illinois soon, I want to try this Mojo.  It is the first reasonably nice rod for me.
