Fluorocarbon For Snook?
Over the years many people have asked us whether they need fluorocarbon to catch snook. The short answer is no, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t help!
Advantages Of Fluorocarbon For Snook Fishing
Many anglers don’t use fluorocarbon and catch snook, but there are many advantages that of fluorocarbon that these snook fishermen may be missing out on.
- Abrasion Resistance- Fluorocarbon is a lot harder then monofilament because the plastic it is made from is A LOT harder than regular monofilament. More abrasion resistance your line will last longer against the sand paper like mouths of snook.
- Visibility - Fluorocarbon is a lot more dense then monofilament which lets light pass through it more easily. This means that it is virtually invisible underwater. If the snook bite has been slow and the water is clear, try switching to fluorocarbon.
