    Hey guys, I remember reading somewhere or hearing from someone somewhere that using braided line for striped bass isn't good. Can someone explain this to me? Why is mono preferred over braided line? I'm just confused, I've been using braided line for all my other fishing applications I.E...

    I have 2 bait casters filled with 50 spider super braid, and I tied it to a swivel using a palmor knot, then used an improve clinch knot from leader line to swivel, and snelled the hook. Managed to snag a live pogie and then I had a monster striper hit it 40 yards away from the boat and it took...

    I could swear I've seen some body (probably Roc) post that braided line isn't always so good for bait and fish finder rigs. I've never done much bait fishing using braid, but I do know the difference it makes for casting distance. Does anybody remember that thread? Does anybody have any...

    I recently put some braided line on a few of my rods to try it out. (I have never been advanced enough to even think to use anything but mono) I seem to get a really good feel for the bottom and bites with the stuff. My problem is in the knots. I'm not very good with knots. Improved clinch &...

    I've been fishing braided line for quite awhile, but only with my spinning reels (Penn 6500's mostly) with little to no problems. The problem comes in when I try to cast plugs with a conventional reel; the line seems to dig into the line on the spool and gets caught up. I've been using Power...
