I have to admit, the name alone peaked my interest as I was surfing through Basspro.com. After reading about it, I realized it doesn't just have a bold name, it's quickly going to be a favorite among saltwater, and even some freshwater anglers. 

Cajun Red Lightnin' Line is a new premium monofilament that has proven to increase your strike ratio.

You might think that the red color of the line is supposed to mimic wounded bait, or blood in the water -- but that's incorrect.  It's red because it disappears in the water.  I know it sounds strange, but there is some scientific backing to this optical illusion. 

Supposedly, the color red is filtered out very quickly by water, causing it to be hard to see in the water. I guess that's why you don't see too much red diving equipment. 

The folks at the Cajun Line Company have taken this concept a step further and optimized the coloring to provide the best hue, transparency, and intensity to provide a line that presents the bait in its most natural setting.  The company is so confident in their line, that they claim that it starts to become "invisible" to fish in as little as three feet of water.

We all know that near invisibility isn't enough in a good fishing line. It also needs to have great knot strength, abrasion resistance, and low stretch. Well, the Cajun Red Lightnin' Line has all this and more, it's also got low memory to minimize birdnests. 

Another great aspect to the line is that the bright red coloring allows you to know when it's time to change your line. Like all mono line, the sun can destroy it. When the Lightnin' Line starts to turn pale, you know the sun has started to do its damage and it's time to change it.

Bass Pro Shops has a large variety of sizes for any type of fishing you might do. From 10-pound to 50-pound test line, you can get the weight you need for the underwater beasts you pursue.   

To sum it up, this line is revolutionary to say the least. Get your hands on some and get ready to start reeling 'em in.
