Default need power pro trolling line suggestions

I have a Penn 555 that I want to put power pro or simular line on for trolling big lures (stretch30-40s) big Rapalas and large spoons on planars.

Thanks for any help

Just make sure you use a good mono shock leader or the no stretch factor of the synthetic line will rip the lure out of the fish.

Good luck, and catch em up.

Make sure you spool the PP tight. Then do a wet pack. Search the term.

A Penn 555 has a max drag of 11lbs ... you'll have to down size the lures.
