Bank fishing questions.
What type of leaders do you use?
I use #40 Cajun red for my leader and #65 Power Pro for my main line. I usually make the leader 12-18" long.
I use a 50lb Berkley Big Game 18" leader with a #3 swivel
Depends on the situation. Heavy current I use shorter leaders. Little or no current I use longer leaders. Using a float slip float I use a very short leader so during long casts it does not hang up.
I make my leaders with 20# line and for the heavier ones I use a 50# line. All about 10" of line.
I use a 16" leader, 20# main line (mono) and 20# leader.
It appears that no one uses steel leaders. I would think they they are the best for fishing the river because of mono getting frayed on the rocks.
Does anyone use steel?
nope,I don't use steel leaders except when fishing for toothy fish that can cut the line. I use 20# mono for 90% of my catfishing around 10 inches to three feet long depending on where I'm fishing,and the other 10% of my fishing is with a 50 lb mono leader of varying lengths to coincide with the area fished. I do use a mono line with a high abraision resistence,just to help out,and I always use a higher # test main line,that way if snagged or hung up I can break off and not leave a bunch or yards of heavy braid in the water.
