What LB leader?
« on: June 02, 2020, 03:49:56 pm »
Hey guys,

Curious to know if anyone runs florocarbon leaders from their braid main line? And if so what LB?

Thanks guys. Would appreciate some tips.

Personally, I don’t run braid anymore unless it’s backing on a long line. In the summer months, the fleas get too bad. On my rigger rods, I run 30lb big game and I keep a 15’-20’ 25lb floro leader. I just try to keep the leader a bit lighter than the main line “just incase”.

Usually if I'm running braid rods its in the spring for diving stick baits.  I use 20# flouro and rarely break it off.
