Default Fishing Line

I'm going to redo a couple rods this weekend. I do alot of bass fishing and inshore for reds & specks with the same rods and reels. I just wanted to see what most of you fine folks use as your fishing line. Mono, Floro, or braid. Brands would also be helpful.

Thanks in advance

I will be honest with you I see no benefits to paying the added cost for Braid for inshore fishing. I have used them all and still prefer Ande Back Country in 8 #.

I tried Sufix and Back Country out casts it for absolute sure. Same rod, same reel, same lure Back Country out performs it hands down.

X2 on mono for inshore. I think that stretch mono has helps your hookup ratio throwing soft plastics

Yes you can get Back Country at B P and you can tie on a 3' or 4' Fluoro leader instead. If you need knot help just holler.

Should have asked this last year but now wanting some knot help on attaching a Fluoro Leader.

Lost a rather large fish last year and thinking the leader may help out with that in the future. Actually we never even got the head of the fish turned as the cork went under and went across the front of the boat and snapped the line as soon as it got tight. May have been a shark but not sure. Do shark even eat shrimp? also how many inshore fishermem use leaders while fishing?

If you have an iPhone... check out an app called FishingKnots... think it costs a $1... It has animations on how to tie about 30 different types of knots and gives a description on when to use what knot and whatnot
