    Howdy folks, back again with some questions about leaders. I plan on spooling my rod with 40# test braid. I just assumed you had to use a leader with braid, but it occurred to me i had no idea why? I picked up some 50# test fluorocarbon to make fish finder rigs with for fishing chunk, but...

    As the title states I plan on running a Sea Strike #1 planers. Attached to the end of the planer will be a snap swivel and then the fluorocarbon leader. On the Sea Strike website they recommend a 20-30 feet leader. This seems rather long to me and I'm not sure how easy this would be to land a...

    I am currently using Ande Mono 30 lb clear leader line. After attaching this line to a in line sinker and the other end a swim shad rubber bait this line does not hang strait. It is curled. Is this normal for Mono Leader, I know mono does stretch. How about Fluro leader, would I have the...

    Put away your winter gloves and brake out your leader gloves. With the arrival of Spring we thought we'd offer a super deal on Pakula Leader Gloves when added to any other purchase. OK, Here's the Spring Sale on these. If you add these gloves to any product order we have set the price to...

    I know this has been brought up on other posts, and I understand that with surf casting, especially when using braid, you should put on a shock leader (approximately 10lbs per every 1oz cast). Last year I spent my entire season not using a shock leader, and never had any break-offs and still...

    New to jigging for stripers. Going to use Fluorocarbon leader (about 3 feet) attached to Mono. Does it really matter if the swivel is attached between Fluorocarbon and Mono? Could I just attach a swivel at end of Fluorocarbon or onto the jig with a split ring? Since most of my fishing will be...

    Looking for a little advice, I run 50# braid off my baitcaster's and would like to know what I should use as leader from braid to the bait/lure depending on what I am using. Any suggestion would be appreciated. I plan to run Koppers LiveTarget Blue Back Herring lure behind it or live bait...
  11. The Striper Forum
    I am intending to use 12.5 lb Grand Max fluorocarbon like a leader for saltwater striper bass fishing. Not sure - is it enough strong line? Around of San Francisco striper basses are not very big 3-20 lb. There is opinion that striper bass has very good vision and thinner line is preferable...

    While bait fishing with slider and weight, do you think I could catch larger fish by stopping the slider at say five feet instead of just letting bait run free.. do you think a quickfish with a herring wrap would work when tide is going out, at slack tide what lures do you cast south of troy

    Ive been fishing striper's for 9 years, this year will be my 10th and i have never had a problem, the reason i ask is i lost by far the biggest striper of my career last spring boatside after he CHEWED THROUGH my 20lb PLine fluorocarbon leader. the fight lasted 15-20 mins and the only...

    first striper strip planned for this week!! I have been noticing in the fishing reports that there are alot of big blues mixed in with the stripers. I plan on fishing bait and some plugging. My question is, since there are so many blues mixed in with the stripers, do you recommend using a...

    I am new to the sport of stripers, I have been bouncing around on the forums trying to pic up a few tips before I venture out and try my luck. I have been noticing the term shock leader, which seems to gettied to the braided line. Can someone tell me what the purpose of the shock leader is...

    New to this forum and striper fishing. Really enjoying the tips and overall banter. I fished the river side at Salisbury last week. Beautiful day, incoming tide. Fished herring chunks from the small jetty by the toothpick ( I think it's called). There must have been 10 rods on land within eye...

    Hey guys, newbie here on the S.Shore of MA, have only fished fresh when I was a kid and am now starting salt. Have an old 19' bowrider boat and am planning on taking my wife and 7 yr old on our first family fishing expedition next week while we're all on vacation (staycation). We'll be staying...
  18. Stripers on the Fly
    I've fished for stripers on spinning equipment for some years with marginal success. However my true love is the fly rod, but I only owned 5 wt for trout, until now. Orvis had a deal I couldn't pass up; Free reel with purchase of select rods. So I just bought a 9' 9wt TLS rod with Battenkill IV...

    I make my own slider rigs and I've been using "Jeros Tackle" leader. I bought it a few years back cause I that's all the shop had and I needed it. I've been using it because I don't like to waste things but I'm definitely ready to throw it in the trash where it belongs. It's 30lb w/ 0.70 mm...
