Default inhore fishing-- Line question

have an inshore rod and spooled it with fluorescent yellow 12lb line. Is this a disadvantage for inshore fishing or is it ok to use? would clear line be better? didn't really think about it when i bought he line and do very little inshore fishing

Jeff

I recently spooled two of my trout reels with 10lb. Stren high-vis orange and haven't seen any disadvantages at all. I was wondering the same thing but spooled it on there becaue I use the line on heavier stuff and like it so I decided just to give it a try and have caught fish on both of those outfits. I also like it because if I get any unsightly over/unders with the guys I fish with, I can untangle it pretty easy as it is easy to see the two lines. I truly think it comes down more to what you have confidence in and with all the stuff out there right now, if you fish it enough, you will catch fish with it.

As long as you use a leader you shouldn't have any problems.

I agree, use a 2' to 3' fluorocarbon leader in the 15lb to 25lb class depending upon target species and you'll be in great shape.

I agree about the shock leader and being fluorocarbon Inshore fish have teeth and this will help from retying a lot less and I do not go over double the amount of the mono example 10 lb mono no more then 20 lb fluorocarbon There is a lot of tricks out there I use a double surgeon knot and around 2' for top water ,crank baits and jig head with Gulp we can talk forever on this
