whats the heaviest line you use for crappie?
i think i've used about everything generally 8-10 pound mono
I use 15# spiderwire on my crappie rods, it is the same size as 4# mono. I have used up to 10# mono with some success, but like the smaller diameter lines. The reason I went to the braids is I can get my jigs out of the brush when hung up. I just have to straighten the hook out rebend it and start fishing again. Crappie can be extremely line shy.
I use 10# Spiderwire and 6 & 8# mono.
tho i wasn't crappie fishing, i have caught them on my custom rod with 50lb power pro...like cats, if they're hungry they are gonna eat:wink:
I have used from sewing thread up to 12# test. Depends on circumstances.
I was gonna say there probably were some on the board that used 50 lb. power-pro, and then, here came Phil. He beat me to it. LOL
My main crappie rods are spolled with 8 or 10 lb trilene,I have caught a ton while pitchin for bass with 12 lb trilene though:cool2:
When I crappie fish here in Georgia I use a cheap zebco 33 rod and reel combo. With what ever is the cheapest 8 pound test on sale. Yeah you might hang a bass or even a cat fish, but your fishing for crappie right! Try to reel those bigger fish in, but if it brakes the line, tie on a new hook and start fishing agian! Crappie fishing is a lot of fun and good eats!!!!!:smile2:
4 lb mono or 10 lb powerpro for me.
I had some 8-10 lb mono, one rod had 20 lb on it. Now I use 4 lb p line or 8 lb berkeley
I prefer 6# mono but have just started using 4# vanish fluoro and love it.
4 to 6lb mono, with a fluorocarbon leader
I have 8# mono on my ultralights.
