What size leader do you use in the fall? For spring trolling, all of my tandems and chutes for umbrellas are tied with 60lb Ande. Should I use a smaller leader or maybe fluorocarbon? Thanks in advance.
This actually happened to me this spring. Maybe I should go bigger. Just like you said, we lost her right at the boat and it did break at the knot. Thanks Capt. George.---I go 80 # in Spring & Fall , I've always felt that a fish of a lifetime could break 60# at the Knots & Especilly the lure knot --A 55# fish Dosent leave much leeway for Murphys law , that usually occurs at the Side of the boat --geo.
I use 220's for my planer board rods because that is what I have. I do use 50# braid on them. We have caught some good sized fish on them.is 25 lb test on 220 penns too light? For rockfish
