Lead core line setup?


Recommended Posts

I am going to try some lead core this weekend for the first time.

What weight leader do you use and how long of leader do you use?

Also, when tying the lead core to the reel. Do you tie right to the reel or strip out a few inchs of lead and tie on without the lead in the line? confused Thanks.

you will want to tie a backer line to the reel first then the lead. I use power pro usually as it is thin for the weight. I usually use about 50 yards of backer then 5-6 colors of lead. This is for a lake like mille lacs only needing to get to 25-30 feet down.

I usually use a 10 lb fluro leader when in clear water, and a fireline leader for the river.

Goodluck with the leadcore, it can be a great way to put fish in the boat once you get them dialed in!
