what do you think is the best line to use for big catfishing????
I use #40 big game berkley solar green, and some #35 musky cortland. But I would say best is #40 Big game berkley solar green.
my fav. brand is Berkly but I also like Ande Tourny. 20 lb for smaller stuff i use Berkly xt12lb
I use Berkley Big Game. I also like the solar color. I don't see as well as I used too and the solar makes a big difference. I choose the pound test according to the fish I'm after.:0a26: :0a18:
Berkely Big Game as well....
Nothing but Cajun Red Advantage by Shakespeare.......I used to use Berkley Big Game but the endurance just wasnt there and I had to re-spool it often and when you are spooling 12 reels at a time, this gets expensive. I use what works best for me in the conditions I fish and this is some very tough line. I hear the Yozuri line is very good and when I am no longer satisfied with the results of the Cajun line, I will try this......but for now its Cajun Red.
I am a fan of the Berkley Big Game line.
i personally have iron silk on my reels now i have used cajun in the past and liked it but i did not care for big game
Premium saltwater Ande.
Vicious 30# all the way.
Yo-Zuri 30# is a VERY tough line that handles well.
I use 20 lb test all the way.
I use nothing but Ande Tournament line now. I realized that if I ever hung a line class record that most of the lines will overtest their rating and disqualify my application, and sure enough I set one of the IGFA's world line class records! The rating of the line is determined by how open the water is and how long you want to fight a fish. In open water, I have landed a 37 lb blue on 4 lb test (about an hour) and a 77 lb blue on 20 lb (it took a little longer). I have also fought VERY large blues on 4 lb test for 4 to 6 hours (trying for another world record), even had them up to the boat, but I usually fish alone and so far I have always managed to do something foolish and broke them off before getting the net under them. Hope this helps! Good fishing!
i have fished berkly big game since i started goin after cats, it works pretty well, but another i may try is trylean, its the origanal, I caught 6lb bass on 4lb test all day long
i use the berkly big game, its cheap and strong. I'e picked up a 50lb dumb bell with 30lb test. my buddy told me it would but i had to test it to see if it was true.
I like powerpro 65#
im gonna try this size and brand of line, so you say its good
Power Pro 65 and 80#
I LIKE BERKLEY BIG GAME.
Sufix all the way, 20 or 25 pound in neon tang' Siege and or Hi-Vis yellow Elite... I have a photo of a 65 barge rope that was oil soaked and wet from laying on the bottom of the Ohio river for lord knows how long... We weighed it and it was if I remember right around 125 to 130 pounds... And he brought it in on 20 pound Sufix Elite ..!
