Trolling rod line weight


Recommended Posts

If you read previous threads, you’ll find a lot of members use 30lbs mono on there rigger rods for salmon. It helps to keep the fleas off when they get bad. Use a fluoro leader off the mainline. No need to spool fluoro on the entire reel (although it’ll work, it’s just more expensive). I use 17-20lbs fluoro for leaders for salmon. So to answer your initial question, you should be fine. You could always tie on a lighter leader if the fish get finicky.

I always have 30lb mono on my rigger lines. If I'm targeting trout then I run a thinner fluorocarbon leader. I have had a lot of problems with salmon breaking off thinner lines so I don't normally put a leader on for salmon and I haven't had any issues with catch ratio.
