Favorite Line For Deep Cranking?

Recommended Posts

What is everybody's favorite deep cranking line? I was thinking about trying 8lb CXX because I have found it is so much stronger than what it is rated...any ideas?

I am going to be in the minority here, but I like 20# braid, it's equal to 6lb mono in diameter so cranks get to there max depth on it, you can feel every thing, super long casts, and I get the hooks in the fish on one of those super long casts. I use a 7'9" MH power, moderate action graphite cranking rod, I have not had any trouble pulling the bait away from fish, pulling hooks out, or any of that other nonsense you hear about when people tell you need to crank with mono or fluoro, and glass rods. When I need more abbrasion resistance than the braid offers I tie a 2' fluorocarbon leader on, usually 10 or 12 lb test so I can still get the cranks near or down to the max depth.

I will be doing my deep cranking with 8lb CXX this year. Seems like it would be a perfect fit.

Call me old fashioned, but I like Sufix Deep Crankin' for Deep Crankin'. 10# to be precise.

I see nothing wrong with braid for deep cranking if your set-up can keep from tearing hooks out...more power to ya. I just like my line to be a little more forgiving. 8-10# Invizx is a good one.

It was a sarcastic joke.

I hate crankbaits! I think braid would be best, though. Maximum depth, maximum strength and sensitivity.

I'm not much of a deep crankbait fisherman, but I think 8-10# copolymer line works great for crankbait fishing. I was using 8# CXX on my cranking stick last year, and it worked very well I thought.

For me deep cranking is 8-12 ft so 12# stren super knot green works good but when I fish a clear lake like gaston 8-10# "vanish" to really get it digging and hitting the grass early in the year
