Thin diameter line is great for spinning reels, but if you’re using baitcasting reels, you don’t want to use anything under 20 lb. braid. If the line is really thin, it’ll dig into the spool if you have a big fish on or get snagged, which can cause knots and tangles.

What pound test should I use for bass fishing?

Should I use a leader when bass fishing?

For bass fishing per se, you don’t need to use a wire leader, as their teeth do not manage to cut through fluorocarbon line. But in waters that hold a lot of pike or musky, using a thinner wire leader of 10-12lb can reduce the risk of getting bite-offs significantly.

What pound braid is best for bass?

Most bass anglers will use a 6 pound to 8 pound test line when using finesse or light line techniques, or when targeting smaller bass or other fish species. It’s usually a good combination to use a braided main line with a fluorocarbon leader as it can help you set the hook quickly even from a large distance.

What fishing line is better mono or fluorocarbon?

Over the long term, fluorocarbon is extremely resistant to the elements as well, unlike monofilament. Overtime, U.V. rays, rain and humidity, and extreme temperatures (both hot and cold) can cause monofilament to break down and lose strength. Fluorocarbon is much more resistant to these conditions over the long term.
