TileMan Dan, December 13, 2014 in Questions About Trout & Salmon Trolling?
I use 27 lbs.
in april and may?
Yup. Tuf line micro lead core. I use the same short cores as SWR later in the year.
It's pretty small diameter.
ohh ok 27 lb core.. thought u were talking leader
I run 12 lbs leader in the spring. Sorry I misread.
I have gotten 2 reels setup one with 3 colors the other with four.
What is the favored rod for running lead core?
While recently setting up my leadcore I found that tying the Big Game 20lbs test mono to the micro swivel to be difficult, the line is thick and doesn't cinch down as nice as I would like even while lubricating it with saliva. The first few tries you could see some damage to the main line while it was cinching down which I wasn't happy with.
I recently saw a tip on one of the WFN fishing shows which was to rub some chap stick on the line before tying the knot.
This made a huge difference in cinching the knot down, tight and clean!
Can't wait to get out there and try these out.
Mono to standard leadcore use the willis knot
