Line for Son’s Spinning reel?

Recommended Posts

Hey folks. During the downtime I’ve been fishing more and my son who is 11 has been coming along. He is proficient with a spinning reel and uses 1 rod and reel.

2500 size Plfueger President / 7’ St. Croix Avid spinning rod.

What would be the best all around line for him. Weightless Senko / Swim Jigs. Thanks.

Ten or 15 pound braid with a flouro leader should be fine. So many choices. Good luck and have fun.😁

Forgot to mention. I spooled a couple up with Berkeley x5 last year. I like it.

Yeah the braid would be a good option especially fishing around cover and casting realatively light baits.  Also, with no stretch driving the hook home should work well.  Personally I skip the flouro leader unless I'm adding a swivel due to lure spin.  Even then I'll usually opt for mono to give me a little stretch.

I tried the little swivels and didn't care much for them so I learned how to tie the double uni.  Works slick.  For the weightless senko I whacky style so don't get twist with that and have not noticed any twist with swim jig. Not a biggy to have anything extra on the sim jig. Agree with the mono, I usually have a few feet of trilene XT cuz its cost is way lower and works great.  prefer cheap if it works. :) ;)

10 lb braid is a very good start. You can tie on a mono leader for both a little stretch and visibility if needed for clear water. I as use the mono for bobber fishing panfish as I can change to a lighter  lb test or a step up when fishing docks.  When bass fishing dock my line could go to14 - 17 lb test.. or a 4 lb test for panfish and trout fishing. It's the length of line that can help also.

      Anyone getting any over the air TV station with a small antenna? I am not asking about any specific area but curious in an area from Vermilion, Ely, Isabella and the Shore areas.

      We're having daily heat adversey,  20+ days of 90 deg. Hang in there. NOAA and Federal forecast just announced the Midwest has a 95% chance of a January through March La Nina which means a cold winter and above average snow fall. Early ice may be a challange with forecasted colder and wetter October through December.

      Now maybe the lake will come up some so my boat will come off the lift, and the grass won't be crunchy...
