20lb power pro is fine for most bass applications. If you are fishing near timber or vegetation you will be happy you went with 20 and not 15. Some people go as heavy as 50 or 75 for bass in cover but that isn't the kind of fishing I personally do.
I like to tie a modified albright and use a two to three foot leader of fluorocarbon on my power pro. Some people think that is a saltwater only method but I think it helps with visibility. You can also use a 15lb flouro leader if you want a thinner line profile or a little more sport to your fight.
Either way, good decision, the 20lb diameter is thin and extremely sensitive. Your hook sets should also benefit from the braid's no stretch qualities also.
I hope this helps
So my question: can you just use a high lb. test mono. or fluro. line and get away with it, or would you suggest using a 30lb braided line and maybe a 6 foot mon. or fluro. leader with a lb. test heavier than the braided line?
again i will be doing mostly surf fishing or other places along shore.sorry if my question is confusing, ANY suggestions will help. Thanks.
I prefer braid on my saltwater spinning tackle because:
(1) it does not typically get twisted.
(2) Line memory is not an issue with braid, which also lends itself well to spinning reels.
(3) Braid has a small diameter and you can put a higher amount of line on than with mono. It is comforting to know that my spinning reels have strong line and lots of it. That way if I hook into something big I know I have the line strength and yardage to handle it.
You can definitely use braid on your conventional reel but it handles such a high amount of mono you may want to experiment to decide what you like better.
Braid is thin so it passes through water with little resistance. I am not sure what method or application you are using braid for but in my experience it sinks just fine.
I hope this helps.
Power Pro Braid 20LB Test. Use a backing cheap line and then purchase a small spool of Power Pro Braid. to fill the rest of the spool with. Use the moss green color of the Power Pro Line. You then will be able to pull out any bass almost anywhere. I also recommend dark color lures or plastic worms. I personally use a 4/0 hook with plastic and keep the hook sharp using a file every 5 or so casts.
it is exposed to. 2to3 yrs.
First, check your line for knicks and fraying. There's nothing worse than losing that big fish because your line broke in a weak spot.
Second, look at the color of your line. The lighter the color gets, the older and more vulnerable your line gets.
Good luck, and good fishing!
