Line Selection

Different Lines for Different Days on the Water

Walleye fishing can be a great challenge, and one that thousands of anglers enjoy every year. One area where there may be some confusion for many of these anglers is what type and weight of fishing line to use. When a line is said to have a ten pound test, this means that you should be able to catch a ten pound fish without a chance of this specific line type breaking.

Monofilament fishing line, called mono for short by anglers, is the most common line type. This is usually found in either green or clear, and this line type is usually what is on pre-spooled reels. This line type has memory, and tries to keep to the spool shape when casted. Unfortunately, this can lead to the line tangling up or getting snarled easily, but it does make a great all purpose fishing line. If you are fishing for Walleye in a small pond or river which contains small fish then you could use this line, but there are better options available.

Another line type is called Super fishing line. This includes both fusion lines and braided lines, which can go by the brand names Spiderwire, Powerpro, and Fireline, among many others. These lines consist of more than one line type usually if fusion is used. The materials used in these super lines are either fused or braided together, and the result is a finished fishing line which is much smaller yet much stronger than the traditional monofilament line. Unlike monofilament lines, which list the line diameter on the package, super lines list a pound test limit and a pound diameter. Super lines will not stretch very much, which make them perfect for fishing for Walleye and other fish with teeth, as well as when you are fishing in an area with a lot of heavy cover. These lines are great when fishing for trophy Walleye or in areas which contain the larger fish.

Fluorocarbon fishing line looks remarkably like monofilament line, with one big difference, these lines are invisible under the water, making them great for Walleye fishing when the fish are skittish or are in crowded and over fished areas. Fluorocarbon line does not have as much stretch as monofilament line does, and it is more resistant to abrasions, making it a better choice for Walleye fishing. It also sinks faster, making it more effective. Fluorocarbon line will not absorb any water, which means it will keep its dry tensile strength even under the water.

If you are going to be fishing for trophy Walleye, or are fishing in deep lakes and other large bodies of water where there could be large Walleye, it is advisable to use a twenty pound test line that is either braided or fused, or to use fluorocarbon fishing line, for better results with your Walleye fishing. This is also true if you are tournament fishing for Walleye, because there would be nothing worse than catching a record Walleye just to have an inadequate fishing line that breaks.
