We wrote this article for those who are getting ready to spool up your reels to catch blacktips. This is a quick read that tells you exactly what line you will need to buy. 

What Braided Fishing Line Should I Use?

We recommend using 40-65Lb braid for fishing for blacktip sharks. This should allow you to put plenty of pressure on these sometimes acrobatic fish.

What Monofilament Fishing Line Should I Use?

We recommend 30-50Lb test monofilament for fishing for blacktip sharks using conventional reels. If you are fishing with a spinning reel, braid is the way to go.

What Monofilament Leader Material Should I Use?

Wire leader is the way to go here. If you make a blacktip rig with some mono leader up to wire, we recommend using 400Lb grander leader.

What Fluorocarbon Leader Material Should I Use?

No fluorocarbon fishing line needed here, go straight with wire.
