Braid w flouro leader

I like 10lb power pro with a 6-8lb floro leader. If you fish out in the weather braid is not a good option as it will freeze to the line. Use a good quality ball bearing swivel to eliminate line twist. I also like to use no knot speed clips. Makes changing baits quick and easy.

6# fireline right to the lure in the river, n sometimes a 2' leader in the bay
4lb breaid tied to swivel with lure on swivel. No leaders. Catch alot of fish
10 lb. Fireline to a stainless, ball bearing snap swivel, to a moonshine spoon. No need for leaders.

I use 20# power pro, a stiff rod and tight drag. I don't want to play around fighting fish and having them tangle in my other line during a hot bite or at prime time. I like to hook them and bring them straight through the hole and get it back down for the next one. I don't fish walleye for the fight...
I use 6lb p-line cxx (extra tough) all the way with a small quality barrel swivel about 16""-24" up from the lure.
It really is strong line. I've never had one break me off yet.. I took a limit of fish using it yesterday afternoon on the west side of the bay. The lake trout in my profile pic was taken using the same line also


6lb powerpro w/ 8lb floro
