We wrote this article for those who are spooling up their setup to catch tarpon. This is a quick read that will tell you exactly what you should buy to target tarpon. 

What Braided Fishing Line Should I Use?

We recommend using 50-80Lb braid for fishing for tarpon. You can fish 20-40Lb braid if fishing for tarpon in the 10-30Lb range.

What Monofilament Fishing Line Should I Use?

We recommend 25-30Lb monofilament for tarpon fishing if you want to fish mono.  However we feel that braid is a lot more effective for tarpon fishing since it will allow you to put the pressure you need on the fish with lighter tackle (quick releases make for healthy releases).

What Monofilament Leader Material Should I Use?

For days when the bite is slow scale back to 40Lb mono leader , but for most days we recommend keeping 50,60, and 80lb leader material in your tackle bag. 

What Fluorocarbon Leader Material Should I Use?

Fluorocarbon can make a big difference when the tarpon bite is slow. For days when the bite is slow scale back to 40Lb fluorocarbon, but for most days we recommend keeping 50,60, and 80lb fluoro in your tackle bag.
