Just wondering what kind of line(s)(brands and types) you die-hard fishermen use. I was thinking about getting the Berkley Fireline. Has anyone use that. If you have? How's the performance on it?
Up till this summer I always fished from shore. Last year I caugth over 100 bass @ Quincy. Some times in as little as 6in water. When the line Is in the water I cant see it at all. Wheather the fish see it or not im not sure. I had a day a few months ago where I got 16 walleyes. A few nights where we got over 30 smallies. Id say with those #'s its safe to say it works finejames said:Jay --- Do you ever shore fish? I'm asking because I've considered the Shakespere Cajin Red. I fish shallow alot though, and have wondered about visability. I don't know whether to believe them. About how red is the least visable color underwater (after 3 feet or something). Or believe the red hook hype. I switched to floro recently, and want to change back to mono.
you have to kind of guess as too how much backing to use, it depends on the size of your spool,most of the rolls of fireline are only 125 yards unless you buy the big rolls(thats what i do) and you don't want to over or under fill your reel. at the price of this stuff you dont want to waste it.meandmydog said:how long of a backing should i use and what test
