    I have used all differant colors I prefer green line as a preferance only, I have used yellow fire line with a slip bobber in lakes and ponds bank fishing, I manly used it to be able to see my line move, with little light, I was able to catch 10-20lbs on a regular basis. I am currently using smoke colored YO ZURI line because I could not find 30lb test in green and it is working fine, I caught a 45lbs and 15lb blue last night with it and lost 5 more. My fault not the lines. Good luck and have fun.

    thanks for the info. i put some momoi line on one of my reels the other day. somebody told me it was supposed to be pretty good. its bright yellow and i didnt know if that was a bad thing or not.

    Cajun red seems to be gaining in popularity. Red becomes almost invisable in water over 15- 20 deep.

    I think cajun red line works best, but i agree with other people it is whats on the hook.

    I like the bright green big cat because I can see it so good day or night. If that's a concern just use cajun red for your leader between hook and weight.

    Good Fishin

    thanks for all the info. i usually fish at night myself but i had never used any of this bright line before so wasnt sure. somebody else recommended this line called momoi. i had never even heard of it but thought i would try it out.

    Im confused over this red thing as cajun line is supposed to disapear but red hooks are supposed to attract. I just use whatever for cats. If it stinks, it usually works.

    and red colored bass lures are so sopossed to attracte yet disappear in deeper water. cuz ive got a red countdown rapala and it can go down pretty deep.
