What type of line is best?

Different situations call for different types of line. Use the guidelines below:

  • Fishing in clear water: Fluorocarbon and red line are recommended because of their low-visibility properties.
  • Fishing in thick vegetation or heavy cover: Braided lines have no-stretch for super quick hooksets and they cut through the vegetation better to help you get the fish out of the weeds.
  • All-purpose: Monofilament line is considered an all-purpose choice and is good for general use in most situations.
