Baitcaster Fishing Line Recommenations (not superline)

Recommended Posts

First year really getting into using baitcasters. I am spooling my baitcasting reels with pflorocarbon/copolymer line. I'll likely use it on one reel primarily for cranks/spinner bait. On another, I will likely use mostly for jigs/texas rig/plastics.

I am looking for one that casts well, durable, low memory, and is not likely to contribute to backlash issues. I just tried some Seaguar InvizX 12# - casts well, but seem to have a lot more BACKLASH issues. Yozuri Hybrid seems to be really popular and am leaning that direction. I've heard that some lines are more prone to backlash than others. What recommendations do you have and why.

Also, I am thinking 12# test for the crank/spinner reel, and 15 or 20# for the other. If you have a different recommendation on the # test please include in your feedback.

Thanks!

Yozuri Hybrid may be a bit stiff for some users but it's break strength is where this line really shines. Stiff is good for slop, but that's personal preference.

I personally use Silverthread - costs less. After 30 mins of line soak, it works even better.

I use Trilene XL, 12# works for me and I don't really ever get backlashes with it

I really like the Suffix Siege. Small diameter, super smooth, and easy to pick out the small backlashes I get.

I use 12 lb. on my crank/spinner reel. Until last week I had 17 lb. on my plastics reel. Then I went with Power Pro on that reel. It is the first braid that hasn't made me crazy.

I think you'll really like the Suffix Siege.

Thanks for all the feedback all. Haven't seen any of the Silver thread around (assume I would be going with the excalibur if I could find it)

hhguide, what p-line do you use on your baitcaster. I have used CXXX and like it, but was thinking in the 12#+ it might be a little too stiff.

Couldn't find any of the Silver Thread around, so I went with the Gamma Copoly 12#. Stuff has been working great. Very easy to cast, and manage on the new Baitcaster (Pflueger Patriarch). Price was very reasonable and there is enough to spool two reels.

Thanks for the recommendations!

    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
