    does line color seem to make any difference? i have seen yellow clear red blue green then there is the braids. i fish muddy lakes , rivers and very clear lakes that you can see bottom at 7 or 10 feet.

    No. It is better to go with a hi-vis line so you can see it better at night.

    nope makes no difference what color the line is,cats dont get line shy they just care about that food at the end of it.really its what you like,what color you can see the best that kind of thing.

    I agree with this post. Hi-vis also helps those of us that don't see as good as we once did.

    I agree.High vis all the way.I've been usin Sufix Neon Tangerine and its nice and visible against the water and when light hits it.I don't think catfish really care.I doubt there is much,let alone any visability at the bottom of a muddy river at 2 oclock in the morning anyway:wink:

    Yep, I agree..for cats it's what the fisherman can see best not what the cats see, I don't think they care. But you can always use clear leaders if it's a concern.

    i used ta use the green braid and then switched to the HI-vis yellow, makes it much nicer for nite fishing , catty's don't care what color it is just as long as there is food at the end of it:wink:

    Catfish cannot see very well even in clear water, they feed by smell and vibration more than sight. Line color makes no difference.

    Color doesn't matter to me either , high vis is fine. If the color still bugs ya you could always use a low vis on your leader , like fluorocarbon.

    Bass Pro has 2400 yd spools but not anything larger than 14lb. The Stren website (stren.com) still has it listed for sale, maybe they still have some in stock?? I guess its worth a try. :confused2:
