line for salmon

Recommended Posts

i'm spooling my line soon for salm0n/trout and maybe pike /carp ..sooo i was wondering should i spool it with my trilene tough 8lb or trilene XL 14lb? i have always said 8 or over is good but i really want a better chance at salmon/trout this year ...what do you think?

Depends on the set up your using ....presentation is EVERYTHING if your float fishing ..so i recommend 8 # and reduce from there with a leader .... if your set up is for downrigging ....i run 20 pound but if your talking chucking lures in the river ...straight 8 pound ( you dont want to lose too many lures)

 

Good Luck

actually i have caught 20+ pounders on 12lbs berkley big game monofilament line! not the smartest thing to do but all i did was cast out into the rapids with a spoon :D i dont really recommend that.

 

good luck!
