I normally target channels this year I have made the transition on catching flats. I'm still a channel man at heart just wanting to experience/learn something different. My question especially for the spinning reel crowd but open to anyone. (i dont use braided line by the way) A.Is it better to use a lighter line and run the risk of a break off. :angry: B.Or use a heavier line and run the risk of getting spooled. oooh: I just wanted to see what some people thoughts since I have been pondering this question in my noggin for a bit.
