    Re: Trolling line

    All my trout rods are backed with 8-10 mono, then 20-30lb power pro braid and then a 50' top shot of 12-15lb maxima flouro. My rods I troll very large baits in the rigger with, i use 50-60lb braid because it stays in the rigger release better. Just depends on the type of trolling you intend to do. Hope this helps! Tight lines

    Re: Trolling line

    I’m using 10lb Maxima High Vis... when I respool I think I’m gonna try braid... something around 15-20lb probably.
    It’s better to be fishing and thinking about God then to be in church thinking about fishing.

    The line that comes out of the purple box still works good for catching fish. If you are trolling mostly for planter rainbows, kokanee and the occasional big'un, 8lb will work but 10lb might be a better option. That .001 difference with the 10lb will be a little more abrasion resistant and hold up a little longer than the 8lb, especially when all those fish you will be catching are pulling the line off the downrigger release.
