maybe its your knots. try a palomar knot or their might be something else going on. check your guides for damage too.
Once the word "tuna" is uttered I always think that a heavier line would be best. The absolute lightest line I would use for the scenario you are proposing is 40lb but that is only if you can spool your reel with at least 200 yards, if not more.
I hope this helps. I am tied up right now but would otherwise chech the line capacity of the slammer for you. My Penn Battle is absolutely loaded with 40lb Power Pro (over 300 yards) but that is in case I accidentally hook a shark again while going after Cobia or medium sized tarpon.
I hope this helps
I would think 20 pound test for a 'bama' would be sufficient.
20 pound for bass will land anything that takes your lure.
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.
My suggestion for surf would be to put the braid through a 3 - 5 ounce egg sinker. then tie on a barrel swivel. That will stop your sinker at the barrell. From the barrel, tie on about 4-5 feet of 50 pound flouro. then use a 2/0-4/0 bait hook. I like mustad for price. Braid has virtually no stretch. Very sesitive to bites. the flouro helps improve hook sets.everyone has their way of thinking. A med- heavy 7' rod will land most inshore fish.
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.
