Hello.

I was wondering what kind of line everyone uses when fishing for striped bass?

I'm currently using: 20lb green big game line.

Ok cool. A few questions:

Is it very thick? Or is it a thin line?
Does it cast good?

Yo-Zuri Hybrid or Trilene Big Game...
And Power Pro for certain situations...

The only reason I don't like PP, is that it is a pain in the a** to tie and cut...

What are you fishing with, where are you fishing. I like 12lb test. I use it in the boat and in the marsh. off the beaches I like 20lb could go to 30lb

20, 30, and 50lb powerpro.. switched to PP two years ago, and have it on almost all my rigs, still have a few with fireline but when they are worn out, it'll be powerpro for them as well..

main reason I like the PP line is it's diameter, much thinner then most braids or fused lines; it stays round, so it's consistant in how it comes off the spool and doesn't dig in to itself...

I mostly jig fish and most of that is in deep water. That's where the smaller diameter really shines-- it allows the jig to sink quicker with less resistance from the current, gives a much more positive feel for the jig cuz yer line is much straighter while the jig swings thru -- a lot less of a bow in the line..

that and it doesn't frey out and gain diameter like fused lines..

also take color real well.. I use a black permanent marker.(sharpie) to color the last 5 feet or so..

I've tried 'em all, PP is the cat's ass.. for jigging and long-cast plugging

20 or 25 pound clear ande monofilament line. The tournament green when I feel like spending the money.
30 pound power pro is my new fav. Can recycle the back end when Im done. Just tie it onto the backing from a different reel and rewind.
