What Is Braided Backing & How To Use It

Braided backing is a length of braided fishing line, that you put on the bottom of your fishing reel. You can use braided backing in two different ways. The first way means that you will be filling almost your entire reel with braided fishing line. The second method is that you fill your reel mostly with monofilament fishing line and put a few hundred yards of braided fishing line on the bottom of your reel. 

The video below talks about what braided backing is: 




Why You Would Add Braided Backing To The Bottom Of Your Reel?


So, why would you add a few hundred yards of braided fishing line to the bottom of your reel? The reason you would want to do this is to have a backup if you cannot chase a fish. A few examples where this might occur include: 

1) Landbased Shark Fishing - You are fishing for big fish from a fixed structure and therefore cannot chase the fish.  Having an extra few hundred yards of line on your reel will be of great help to you. 

2) Kite Fishing - The nature of kite fishing means that you are likely to hook multiple fish at once, if these fish swim in multiple directions, there is no way that you can chase in all directions. You may need to leave a rod in a rod holder and let a fish run. This means that the few extra hundred yards of line will come in handy. 

3) Big Game Fishing Offshore - The nature of offshore fishing for big game is that you will usually be fishing near deep-sea canyons or banks. This means the water can be VERY deep and your fish may sound, which means that you may not be able to chase your fish and the best you can do at some points is stay right on top of it. Having a few extra hundred yards of line will help you in this scenario. 

Why Would You Fill Most Of Your Reel With Braid

There are plenty of scenarios where your braided backing will take most of your reel and your monofilament top shot will fill just the top of your reel. This gives you the best of both worlds. You have the small diameter and minimal stretch of the braided fishing line and then the thicker diameter of monofilament fishing line where it counts as well as the stretch and shock absorbing qualities where that counts.
