line for buzzbaits and buzzfrogs

Recommended Posts

Limp mono or CXX copoly for buzzbaits, and braid for buzzfrogs because I tend to throw the buzzfrogs in the heavy weeds, and stick to the weed edges and docks with buzzbaits.

Braid.  I haven't really thrown a lot of buzzfrogs, though--anywhere I can throw a buzzfrog (rage tail or horny toad) I can throw a buzzbait and get a better hookup ratio.  But, absolutely braid for buzzbaits--I'm usually throwing them either alongside or in pads/weeds, and I don't want the fish to have a chance to dive down.

I will add a heavy mono leader sometimes, though.  Like if there's a lot of wood or thorns, or pickerel, or the bass are absolutely crushing the buzzbait and ripping holes in their mouth.  The last one I add a mono leader because I feel like it helps absorb shock and keep a hole large enough to toss the hook from forming.

30-50 lb. braid for both . braid keeps the bait on top more than co-poly or mono would plus it is alot stronger for dealing with grass and other rip-rap ....
