Towing the Walleye Line

Picking the Right Line for Walleye Fishing

Walleye fishing involves a lot of gear. One over-looked, or at least misunderstood, piece of equipment is the fishing line. Understanding the basics of fishing lines will help to ensure that you have the right tool for the job.

Fishing line is rated by weight. The packaging will list the line's pound test number. This means that the line has been tested to hold up to a specified weight. A ten pound test line should be strong enough while you haul in a ten pound walleye.

Line diameter is usually listed on packaging as well. Diameter influences drag on the lure. Larger line diameters create greater resistance. In most cases, this is not a huge deal. It can be a big factor when walleye are soft on the bite. They may detect the resistance and spit out the lure before you get a chance to set the hook.

Monofilament is the most common type of line. It has been around for a while and is a good all-purpose line. It does have some memory issues though. This line tends to keep the spool shape when cast.

This often results in more tangles with the line. Monofilament works fine if you are fishing for walleye in a small pond or river. As long as the fish are small there won't be any major issues.

Fluorocarbon lines look a lot like monofilament lines. There is one major difference though. Fluorocarbon lines are invisible under water. This line is ideal to use in over fished lakes. Walleye in these lakes tend to be more suspicious and slower to bite.

This line sinks much faster than monofilament. Fluorocarbon line will also maintain its dry tensile strength under water. This line has been designed so that it won't absorb water. The more water a line sucks in, the more the tensile strength will decrease.

Super fishing lines include both fusion and braided lines. These lines are actually made up of several lines fused together. This makes the Super fishing lines much smaller and much stronger than monofilament.

Super lines do not stretch very much which make them perfect for walleye. This line can also withstand the rigors of heavy cover. This line is perfect for pulling out a trophy-sized walleye that is under heavy cover.

The line that you need will depend on the task at hand. If you are in pursuit of a trophy-size walleye, you will need to invest in a twenty pound line. This is also true if you are fishing deep waters that may have the big beauties hiding below. Nothing is quite as embarrassing as losing a great fish because your line broke.

Braided or fused lines are the best choice for larger walleyes. They can be found under brand names like Spiderwire, Powerpro or Fireline. At the very least, opt for a fluorocarbon line.

Choosing the right line can be the difference between catching a walleye and catching the razzing for loosing it. There are a lot of line choices on the market these days. The right line is the one that does the job and works for you.
