Do you love big bluegill?
Do you use this for leader material ?
I tried using floro leader material like the bass pros years ago but the leader ended up considerably thicker than the main line braid.
A couple ice seasons ago I tried the 2# on one of my setups the line jumps off the spool quickly, doesn’t absorb water like mono and sinks rapidly. I still have it loaded on one set-up.
how do you feel about braids visibility in the waters you fish ?Is it clear water or stained by you ?
The lakes vary in transparency from gin clear to 15-20’ to varied stained intensity depending on rainfall. The last 6 master angler B.Gills I tagged this year came from very clear periods in the lakes.
I try to fish 2# mono diameter equivalent or less in superlines and have done very well… I believe thinness is the most important factor when it comes to invisibility. In all honesty, I think floro is a sales gimmick when it comes to invisibility. I always refer to the in-fisherman quote below when it comes to line visibility in the water.
Ever wondered how fish truly perceive fluorocarbon, a line advocated for its invisible qualities? And how can panfish, trout, and other species dine on transparent prey like zooplankton if they can’t see them? Or can they?When you examine fluorocarbon under water with an underwater camera or a dive mask, you might be surprised to see that it’s as visible and opaque as braid. But how do the fish perceive it? Does it matter? Read more: http://www.in-fisherman.com/panfish/the-clear-connection-for-panfish-lures/#ixzz4tp2UoOJT
So the way i am currently looking at it, if floro is just as visible as braid underwater why fish a fluorocarbon leader at all? Why not just use thin braid? Its 4 to 5 times stronger for its diameter… why not crank em in and keep the big uns out of the snags. i would have never landed that channel cat the other day if I was using 2# mono or floro
