How to choose the right braid for freshwater spinning

Hello to all fishing enthusiasts!

If you are into spinning for more than a few fishing days, chances are that you are already enjoying amazing performance of braided fishing lines! Experienced fishermen develop their own taste for choosing the best braided lines, but if you are still exploring the world of spinning, here are some helpful advice on details you should check before you fill your spool.

Choosing best braided fishing line for saltwater sometimes can seem like rocket science, but freshwater situations are also requiring some knowledge if you want to fish with maximum pleasure. Most important parameters you need to focus on are fishing line types, fishing line diameter, fishing line strength, fishing line stretch, and fishing line color. These parameters should be adjusted to your fishing styles.

How to choose fishing lines - GER-LINE®

Fishing Line types: most common line types are four and eight strand braided lines. Construction on braided fishing line is affecting on all the other parameters, especially on profile shape, abrasion resistance, castability and smoothness. Generally speaking, 4 strand braid has more minus/ellipsoid profile, rougher and noisier feeling and less casting performance, but better abrasion resistance, easier knotting and usually they are much more affordable. 8 strand braided fishing line, on the other side, usually have almost perfect round profile, smooth and silent performance, outstanding castability, but they are more sensitive to abrasion. 8 strand braid is giving their maximum when you are using the fishing knots that are usually recommended by braided fishing line manufacturers. One more detail you should check is coating composition, more coating means less casting performance and less smoothness but more abrasion resistance. So, rougher the terrain that you are fishing at is, you will need a rougher fishing line.

Fishing Line Diameter and Fishing Line Strength: you should always see these two as a proportion. Old fashion measurement for braided line quality was to find thinnest strongest braided fishing line. Today, we know that not all the manufacturers have the same standards for these measures, so we have to fishing line test chart, or to look for the best rated braided fishing line. No matter the strength, you should go for thicker braid for hard terrains in order to save more lures and thinner when you need better casting. Pick the right diameter according to your spool capacity, and adjust the strength of your line to the strength of your fishing rod. Usually, rod manufacturers are giving recommendations for fishing line strength in the rod specs.

Fishing Stretch: best braided fishing lines do not stretch. You should always have this on your mind when you are trying some new product. Stretchable braid line tends to tangle much more, and the nests of fishing line can really ruin your fishing.

Fishing Line Colors: best braided line color is the one that will be as much visible for you and less visible for the fish.

A short overview of rough fishing styles:

Top Water Fishing /Ultra Light Fishing: If you are targeting trout, perch, asp, chub or bass in clear water, with a small amount of water vegetation, logs, branches or sharp rocks, you are free to enjoy fishing with thin, most sensitive fishing line. You should go for 8 strand braided fishing line, thin as possible, and preferably dark colored. This choice will allow you to cast easily with precision, to have maximum control of lure in the current, enjoy full sensitivity feeling the lure action and fish bites when pulling a lure. Dark green is usually less suspicious of the fish, but if you are fishing in sunny conditions, black will make a contrast that will help you to see the line better. There is no such thing as the ultimate best braided line for bass, but if you are fishing for the bass on topwater lures, or on some light finesse rigs, go for 8 braided line! Please, have on your mind that you should always use fluorocarbon fishing leader for this style of fishing. By using the leader that is slightly weaker than your fishing main line, you will extend your fishing braid lifetime!

Jig Fishing: fishing for Zander and catfish on big rivers is a challenge for every fisherman, and for your fishing gear! In the fast currents you will need a robust response to the battle with big fish. Natural choice here is 4 strand braid. When you have a big catfish on your rod, the fishing line is never too strong! Here you need to make a compromise and to pick the one that will allow you to cast far enough, and to have all the strength needed. On the other side, for Zander, pick the line thinnest fishing line as possible, but strong enough not to lose too many lures. My favorite leader concept for this style is shock leader, that is stronger than fishing main line, because the tears will flow much more for the lost fish than it would for a couple of meters of fishing main line. Fishing on hard terrains means a lot of abrasion, so you will need to “refresh” your line by cutting some meters that got worn out. Best colors for jigging are some hi vis fishing line for poor light conditions, and multicolor for depth figuring.

Combined Techniques:   pike fishing, power fishing for bass, zander fishing on wobblers… all these styles are opening you more choices, will you go for thinner 4 strand braid, or thicker 8 braided line, it is up to you. You will learn the most about the line by casting and fishing on it!

Monofilament Vs Braided, How To Choose Spinning Lines

Hello to all the fishing lovers!

I believe that every single fisherman started his fishing career with spool full of monofilament fishing line. The commercial appearance of braided fishing line started in the early ‘90s and it took some time before dyneema lines became widely used. Before that, all the fishermen using spinning fishing, were equipped with good old mono lines. But that does not mean that monofilaments are the obsolete form of fishing line! The technology is growing every day, developing strongest copolymers for best fishing line performance.

There are a lot of modern mono fishing lines on the market that is superior for some of the fishing situations, and here are fishing tips on how to pick the best one for your spinning fishing.

Trout Fishing In The Brooks

Fishing line for trout- GER-LINE®

In the fast and clear water, even the best braided fishing lines can be a two-edged sword. A stretchless fishing line is a good tool for all the situations where you need fast response, but when you are trying to catch a fish with a soft mouth and really fast reactions, you want to buy yourself some time. This is the reason why amortization of monofilament lines is hooking your fish better in fast currents, the fish can suck in your fishing lure more easily, and you are avoiding a chance for fish to tear its mouth or to open your fishing hook. Mono lines are also allowing us to cast further, and their elasticity and smoothness are giving us a chance to slip down our fishing lures from the branches when we do a bad cast. In order to pick up the best trout fishing line, you should go for proven quality monofilament fishing line manufacturers that are taking care of monofilament line diameter to be constantly same on every millimeter of the line. Go for the soft line, with no memory, and great elasticity to ensure precise casting, smooth hooking of trout and good amortization in big fish fights. Also, pick transparent or brownish colored lines, because trout have good eyesight and suspicious nature. Best diameters for trout starts from 0.16 for small brooks and can go to 0.25mm for big lakes.

Asp Fishing On Pilks And Flies

Asp fishing- GER-LINE®

Asp fishing is great fun, and one of the most efficient methods is the system with heavy fishing lures – spoon or pilk, on the end of the fishing line, and streamer tied on the side leader 0.5-1.2m away from the main lure. This way you can search for fish in multiple water layers at the same time, try two or more lure sizes at one cast, and you are able to cast insanely far! And long casting is what is monofilament fishing line best for! Soft lines with intermediate stretch are the Kings’ choice for long casting, and secure hooking. Systems with multiple lures have Achilles toe – the knots for side leaders. That’s the reason why this technique requires high-quality lines that you can rely on and should always check your knotting. Check diameters between 0.20-0.28 for asp fishing, and choose the transparent lines.

Old School Pike Fishing

Pike fishing line- GER-LINE®

Decades ago, spinners and spoons were the only pike lures available on the market, but even today, they are still unbeatable in fishing some days. A lot of fishermen are still winning the competitions using these classics. If you want to put that same smile on your mustache, and fish with old school heavy metal lures, you will need best rated monofilament fishing line. Even the best braided line on the market cannot take the twisting effect of the spinners. If you just want to make cast or two, the swivels can help your braid to survive, but all day fishing for pike on metals requires best monofilament fishing lines! For this fishing style, pick strongest monofilament, choosing the hard and stiff for the summer and the soft lines for the winter season, to avoid the spiral effect on cold weather. In order to land your pike, you should always use the pike leaders like wolfram, kevlar or stainless steel leader. fishing line diameter between 0.25-0.35mm should be preferred. Line color is not the important topic for catching a pike.

Ice Fishing On Jigs

Ice fishing lines - GER-LINE®

Winter fishing is challenging fishing style that provides a lot of magic. And freshwater fishing is what is braided line most used for. But when you need sensitive approach on your lure presentation, little spikes of ice on your braided fishing line structure can be a deal breaker. Here mono fishing lines are taking again the eternal match of braided fishing line vs. monofilament. You should pick some high quality, low memory and low stretch monofilament for this occasion and catch a fish when everyone else are sticking to the hot tea. You will have to be as quick as possible and to go visual on bite detection, to compensate the feeling and response of dyneema braided line, but after a little exercise, you will be able to be more effective than braid fishermen.

Best Fishing Line for Spinning

First of all, the spinning technique is one of the most popular techniques all over the world. Choosing the best fishing line for spinning is not only critical but also essential if you want to come home with a bucket full of fish. We by Ger-Line know the angler’s needs so we would like to share our experience with every fisherman.

Just to make things clear, the term “best fishing line for spinning” is subjective. Every angler has different needs. Today we will go through some very useful tips that will help you select the best line to load your spinning reel.

Why You Should Select a Good Line for Spinning

 

Got a new spincast reel and want to load it with fishing line? These are the reasons why you should definitely select the best fishing line for spinning.

  1. The spinning retrieval and casting methods tend to corrode the line due to the pressure applied from the guides on the braided fishing line or monofilament fishing line.
  2. Water, dust, sand and the other elements of nature could destroy your line so if you will get strong strikes you will definitely lose the fish. Especially saltwater enthusiasts have to deal with the worse corrosive substance.
  3. Frequent fish strikes are able to affect the fishing line elasticity and finally ruin it.
  4. The slightest imperfection could destroy your fishing trip.
  5. Sometimes, when you have to tie a lure on the line you must wet the knot and let it slide down. If you have a bad quality line it could cause friction.
  6. Respooling after each fishing trip.

Consequently, choosing the best fishing line for spinning is quite important if you do not want to hurt your chances of catching big trophy fish. In the next section, we will go into more details about the “right: fishing line.

What Should I Look for In the Best Fishing Line for Spinning?

Just remember that the fishing line is the most critical link between the fish and you. The bad line means bad fishing day. These are the most common features and characteristics that you should look for.

  • The best fishing line should be made of high-quality materials able to withstand any weather condition.
  • Elasticity levels should approach almost zero rates so you can feel every fish bite.
  • Abrasion resistance and almost zero memory are essential if you want to avoid loops, twists and sudden line breaks.
  • An important feature that will make the difference is that the line should be very smooth and round. Cheap and bad quality lines will lose their roundness after the first fishing trip.

Monofilament Fishing Line

The main characteristic and benefit of monofilament line are that it is quite durable and most of them are resistant to abrasion. However, it is difficult to manage zero stretches so most manufacturers are not able to construct lines with low elasticity levels. It is considered to be one of the best fishing lines for spinning reels and the majority of anglers use it as mainline or leader line.

However, the only disadvantage here is that they are quite visible. We by Ger-Line, through many tests, errors and research managed to construct the unique MEGASTRONG Ger-Line line which is the hallmark of versatility and strength. Having super abrasion resistance and low stretch levels, we can definitely promise that it is a line that all anglers can rely on.

This IGFA honored mono line will be your next fishing buddy.

What Is The Best Fluorocarbon Fishing Line – GER-LINE®

Fluorocarbon Fishing Line

Spinning anglers are very familiar with fluorocarbon fishing line. It looks similar to the classic mono line but it has some features that make it unique and number one selection for almost all techniques. Well, the best fluorocarbon lines have low stretch and their refractive index approaches the refractive index of the water.

In a few words, it is almost invisible. Unfortunately, there are not many “real” fluorocarbon lines on the market. Most of them are just “Fluoro-coated” which means that they are visible like the mono line.

High performance and quality fluorocarbon line should be 100% fluorocarbon! Our recommendation is the MEGACLEAR Fluorocarbon Ger-Line which is made on the pillars of innovation and tested by thousands of anglers.

German Braided Fishing Line - GER-LINE®

Best Brand Of Fishing Line – GER-LINE®

Braided Fishing Line

If you are a spinning enthusiast you definitely use braided line. This line is a good choice for spinning because braided lines have usually a bigger pound test. Additionally, they are able to battle any big fish without any issue.

Thanks to the extra thin diameter you can load your spinning reel with big amounts of braided line. 4 Strand and 8 strand lines are top selections especially if they are made of high-quality fibers. Don’t forget that a high-quality braided line will help you with your casts even if you are using heavy lures.

Undoubtedly, the MEGABRAID 8 Ger-Line is definitely the best fishing line for spinning if you are going to use braided line. Furthermore, this braided line contains 8 extra round high-quality strands woven together which will pass the test of time.

Let’s go Spinning with Ger-Line!

 

Summarizing, these are the best line types for pursuing fish by spinning. Keep in mind that the perfect line for you depends on the target fish and conditions. For medium-size fish, you can just use the mono line or better fluorocarbon line. On the other hand, if your goal is to catch some trophy fish, you should consider the braided line.

It would be a good idea to use the mono line as backing and the main line. Fluorocarbon line is commonly used as the leader line due to fewer visibility levels. Thank you for reading and stay tuned at Ger-Line!

Fluorocarbon Fishing Line: Invisibility and Strength

First of all, modern fishing requires modern cutting-edge fishing equipment. Gone are the days, when a simple mono line was more than enough. Unfortunately, pollution and overfishing reduced fish stocks and fish became more suspicious.

Consequently, you will have to make your bait more attractive! Modern manufacturers like ger-line solved this problem many years ago. The result?

Fluorocarbon line of course! This revolutionary fishing line will definitely bring you to the next fishing level.

What is Fluorocarbon?

Undoubtedly, fluorocarbon is a top selection and we would like to explain the reason. This line is made of dense materials which affect the defractive index of water. What does this mean?

It is nearly invisible in the water and it would be a good idea to use it as leader line both in saltwater and freshwater. The majority of hobby anglers and tournament anglers think tgat fluorocarbon fishing line is a must.

You can use it as a leader line and tie it on the main line with the appropriate swivel. As fly fishing is concerned, you can use it as a tippet. A fluorocarbon leader will definitely increase the possibilities of landing a really huge trophy fish.

On the other hand, we would like to underline the fact that you can load your reel with fluorocarbon. Fluorocarbon is considered to be expensive but if think about the advantages of fluoro, you will realize that it is the cleverest solution.

Specifically, if you are spinning fishing, this line will change your life. Furthermore, due to the fact that fluoro line is denser than mono, it will boost sensitivity. You can feel every fish bite.

Invisibility with MEGACLEAR GER-LINE Fluorocarbon Fishing Line

The question here is not whether to use mono, braided or fluorocarbon line. The real question is which is the best fluorocarbon line. True to the logo of Ger-line «Passion for quality», we pay high attention at quality.

If you take a look at the market you will realize that there are ample fluorocarbon line products. However, the majority of them are not 100% fluorocarbon. This means that they are just fluoro coated.

We by Ger-line want to create products that will meet all your fishing desires whether you are a beginner or avid angler. The MEGACLEAR GER-LINE is one of our top products which will definitely become one of your favorite selection.

While almost all fluorocarbon lines are slightly visible in the water, we managed to approach Invisibility in a great level. Moreover, it is abrassion resistant so if you have a big amberjack or largemouth bass on the hook don’t worry!

Make the difference with the best fluorocarbon line

Finally, fluoro line is the best solution for every angler. The benefits will surprise you and you can fill both spinning and baitcasting reels. However, it is not all about the gear. First and foremost, fishing is a passion and a really interesting hobby.
