Default Wire leader question.

My question is I have regular silver wire ones, the smaller wires twisted together, black ones, heck, just about any kind possable. I was just wondering if any seem to work any better than others (fish not seeing etc,)? I was thinking maybe the black wouldnt glint in the water, however it is black therefore it might show up better? i have no idea...

A lot depends on what you are fishing for. Trolling for Kings most people use a single strand leader. If you are live baiting for anything toothy use the stranded leader. I can't say about the color, I don't think it matters much in most cases. We've had Cobia, Kings, even redfish eat a live bait on steel stranded leader.

Fortrolling or fishing with wire I prefer the red 7-strand. It disappears in the deep water, and in theory it appears as a blood trail when it is visible.
