Default Leaders?

Hey, I'm new to the Forum and to striper fishing. For my 15th birthday a couple Months ago my dad bought me a salt water rod and reel ( I have been fishing for bass for a while but never slalt water ). He bought everything from the penn website including the line to I have 40 lb mono. I was wondering if I need a leader and if so what line, length, and test?

Default Re: Leaders?

Depending on what type of fishing you are doing you may or may not need a leader. If you are planning on jigging, then yes a 3-4 foot length of 40 lb flourocarbon is a good idea.
If you planning on dropping a bait rig, no need for a leader.

Seaguar Leader is best IMO
