What line for cranking?

Recommended Posts

10# test is a good all around line to start with.

If you have a smaller spinning reel you can't go really heavy on the line weight anyway or it won't work properly.

If you plan on fishing in alot of rocks I'd go with Trilene XT 8lb. and if your not I'd go with the new Red cajun 10 lb.  I used the cajun for the first time today and loved how smooth it casted but the abrasion resistance was less than desired.  You just have to make sure you cut off a few inches and retie fairly often.

Rapala makes line especially for cranking, you can get it at BPS.

I use a medium graphite rod with a baitcaster reel on it. I use 12lb, sometimes 10lb line mono.  I prefer a baitcaster for crankbaits. I never use anything less than 10lb mono for cranking because line stretch becomes a factor then.

Sufix has a new line called DeepCrankin. I'm going to give that a try.

What's with reviving 5 year old threads?

And offering the same reply.
