Leader set up

3 posts in this topic

I pretty much use the same leader set up in FW as i do in surf just much lighter.

 

My typical is 10 lb braid to 3 to 4 feet of 8 lb floro or mono with an alberto knot.  I do cast through my guides on occasion

 

Might do to 12 to 15lb leader when working heavy weeds 

 

20lb braid to 20lb leader when tossing larger lures on a slightly heavier rod.

 

4 to 6lb leader for small streams 

 

For trout i may go to 5 to 6 feet or more of leader

This works for me. I fish 10 lb braid to 8lb flourocarbon. I cant tie knots any thinner. 

I use a clip on the leader, unless using a jig head type.

I use a clip as well for hard baits.   If shore fishing  Usually have one rod set up for T rigged soft plastics no clip to hook and one for plugs with clip.

 

 

On boat several of each and a spinner bait rod too.  Will use a heavier leader for spinnerbaits to prevent line tangles or wrapping into lure
