What line and lb test do you use on your Walleye Rod?

19 posts in this topic

I picked up a new Thorne Bros 32" Walleye rod and a Shimano Sedona reel. What pound test and what brand line does everybody use on their Walleye setups?

I have been thinking 6lb test.

Thanks,

I have a few different walleye rods rigged up. My go to one is a Thorne Bros Walleye Sweetheart, that I rig with 4 lb Gamma Copoly.. I have another rod that I use only for jigging rap type lures that has 8 lb Power Pro ice.. I have a 3rd stiffer rod that I use 6lb Gamma on when I am in an area of big fish.

4 or 5 lb test in Gamma copoly or P-Line FlouroIce, and fireline crystal on one of my jigging rods.

i also use a few thorne brothers rods for walleyes.I use 12lbs floro because it tangles less with jigging spoons and i think that it slows down the fall of some spoons. just my .02
