what pound test line do most of you use for bluegills?
i use a fly rod with a 6lb leader
We usually use 8#.
I use 80lb test Power Pro and snatch their lips off!!!:smile2:
Look out, Skip!!! Don't let those PETA folks hear that!oooh:
I use 6#. I usually use stren low-vis green but I am trying cajun red
this year for the first time.
i like to use some 10lb braided line! somethings when i go bluegill fishing i may come across a bass!:cool2:
come on guyz lets give'em a sporting chance:smile2:
but thats whats nice about bluegill, most of the time, they don't care...
usually i use a 6 or 8 lbs test. seems to work pretty well.
I go with #4 myself.
I use 4 lb. I can cast it really well and as long as you set your drag right you can land a good bass or catfish too. Bream arent line shy though so really any size line will work but I find the 4 lb just cast better.
If I am just going after bluegill then I use 4#
Depends on which rod I take after them. If I'm using my ultra light spinning rod & reel...I've got 4# cajun red. If I take my 14' canepole....I think its got 20# mono with a wire hook. So if I get snagged, I dont break my line...just straightens out the hook and I rebend it and keep on fishing. Sometimes when the Bluegill are biting close to the bank, I like to use my cane pole and just lift them out of the water and into the bait bucket. It works great and is quick.:wink:
Right on, that's what the drag is for and it's what makes ultalight fishing so much fun. I like 4# on ulta-light and 6# for flyrod leader. When baitfishing the 1/100th oz., #12 hook trout heads tipped w/wax or red or green worms are killers for the lil' ones.
i use 4 to 6# test on a ultra light reel just to get a better fight,its pretty fun.I even use real small circle hooks,it works great.
i like 4-6 pound test flourocarbon mono. i catch a lot more since switching.
Bluegills are hard not to catch, pretty much any line that isn't too big is fine. I don't think they make a line to light for bluegill fishing so anything will work. If you want to have fun while doing it use the lightest equipment you can possibly find or a very light fly pole. Nothing like watching these little bluegill take out a topwater fly! On a regular pole I just get the smallest hooks I can find and put a wax worm on it, as soon as those wax worm juices hit the water the bluegills fight it out for the worm. I sometimes use a bobber but usually the wax worm can't even hit the bottom before being attacked.
I like to use 2lb. test a small split and ultra light r&r and usually a sliding bobber.
I use #2,Iv got the koolest lil BlueGill set up,UgleStick U/L It is my bait poll ...
I use 2# on an ultra light set up. Fun fun fun when you need to catch a bunch of em. Of course I've lost a few when they get taken out by a big bass on the way in.
