Default Fishing line

I only inshore fish for reds and speckle trout. I need to replace all my fishing lines. Currently I use 20lb braid with some mono. Any ideas as for better ways and line to buy. Thx.

I have used Ande back country for a lot of years, but just recently switched over to braid. The only reason I did that is not because I was dissatisfied but I am now fishing out of a kayak. The old reels I used to use were 4000 sized reels. Which hold a bunch of line. Due to movement while sitting down in a yak I had to downsize rods and reels to much lighter stuff. I moved to 2500 sized reels and could not use mono any more due to the size of the fish I am targeting. With all that being said, if I was to go back to mono. It would definitely be Ande back country, no questions asked. I only used 6 pound and 8 pound and caught some absolute monsters on it. From a boat you do not need to worry about being spooled with a 4000 sized reel.

I changed from 20# to 10# for my inshore rods and do not regret it. I can sling a lure much further and a cross wind does not affect it as much.
The day may come when I break off to a Rouge Bull Red, But I target Slots and Keepers and have not had any problems yet.
I like the Power Pro Super Slick.
Try it on ONE of your Rods and decide for yourself...

Should I get rid of the braid. It’s a pain when you break off and try to join the two together. I use penn 2500 and 3000 reels. Thx for the responds.

Not sure who this question was directed to?/.............

My reply should have indicated that I like the Braid and that is what I use..


Unrelated, But............................ When I first started using Braid over mono, I struggled to determine how much Mono to put on first.
In a PM to one of the Regular posters, I asked that question.
The Reply was along the lines of:

Temporarily,Put the Braid on a unused Reel Spool like the one you will ultimately be using first. Then Fill the spool with the Mono until it is loaded like you want it.
Then swap spools and Transfer the line to the other spool. It worked well for me that way.
I found that Too much Braid leads to wind Knots when too much line tries to leave the spool and drags off loops of line from the Spool and Too little Braid does not cast well if it is Too deep in the Spool.

Check on amazon for KastKing braid. I bought 1000 yds of 20lb braid for less than $40 and they have various other sizes as well. Better hurry as it sells out quick. Pretty good stuff for the money

I have always used Momoi Diamond and never could get past the twists with braid.
