So I've got a few bucks to spend on fishing gear and am considering this setup: Shimano Stradic (using this rod/reel combo) With this line Not sure if I should use the 10lb or 15 lb line. 10 LB .006" DIA. (.15mm) vs 15 LB .008" DIA. (0.2mm) What do you guys think? I know the reel is rated for 6 lbs, but if I remember correctly (and please correct me if I'm wrong) that's talking about standard size monofilament right? 6 LB .009" DIA. (.24mm) This pole will be my 'active' fishing pole for baitfish, bass and small channel cat at night. Also I'll use it for my lightweight backpacking/camping trips, fresh fish out on the trail is NICE, so I need something doesn't add much weight to my pack. I already have a dedicated catfish pole that I'll be re-stringing with that same line using this size: 40 LB .012" DIA. (0.3mm) My budget is about $400, so this leaves me with enough for another box or two of hooks/bait kits and I have a pretty decent selection as is.
