    I'm doing a survey on what lines people use for cafishing. Brand is not important, but please answer the following:

    1. What pound test of mono line do you use most often for catfishing?

    2. What color preference, if any, do you use for catfishing?

    3. What pound test of braided line do you use most often for catfishing?

    Good Morning,

    #1- The LB test line I prefer is 20#-MONO BUT with 30 LB leaders

    #2- The color that I prefer is the Cajun Red during the cooler months, when I fish during the day. When I'm night fishing, during the summer months, I like the Suffix Elite flourescent yellow because it glows with my blacklight.

    #3- As far as braided line goes, I'll use it on my heavier(saltwater) baitcaster/trolling rods. I still have several scars on my fingers from using it on my spinners & holding the line during the hookset. Old/bad habits are hard to break:cool2:

    HTH, Elliot

    For Cats I've always preferred 30# and may try 40# later this year.

    2. What color preference, if any, do you use for catfishing?

    I like the Solar Green and Electric Blue- Big Game most of the time.

    3. What pound test of braided line do you use most often for catfishing?

    Never used braided line so can't answer that. I plan on trying it sometime though, just so darn expensive!!!!:smile2:

    1. 40 lb. for main cat fishing, Andy, Big Game, leaning toward Andy, not as stiff,
    an easer to work with.
    Dip or punch bait I like, 20 or 30 lb Power pro. 40 would work.

    2. Solar. flouresent, something easy to see.
    3. Braid, Power pro, 40 bait casting reels & 20 on spining reels.

    1. What pound test of mono line do you use most often for catfishing?
    40# mono main with 30# leader on my baitcasters, 30# mono main with 20# leader on my spinners. ( I know i am upside down from most on my # leaders vs # main line, I run carolina rigs mostly so my theory is if I have to break off I want it to be below the swivel that way all I have lost is a hook.) Berkely Big Game or Big Game Hi-Test.

    2. What color preference, if any, do you use for catfishing?
    Solar Green

    3. What pound test of braided line do you use most often for catfishing?
    I dont use braid.
