What Braided Fishing Line Should I Use?

We recommend using 20-30Lb braid for if you are site casting to redfish or fishing with artificials. With 20-30Lb braid you should not have a problem catching even the biggest of redfish. Braid is EXCELLENT for red fishing. Braid has excellent castability and very little stretch with makes for great redfish hook sets.

If you are only fishing for big bull reds exclusively and are not expecting to catch any smaller fish you may want to beef up your tackle to 40-50LB braid
