Bass Fishing, It's All In The Line

Apr 28, 2008
Maybe you haven't noticed before but most times when people who fish on regular basis talk to each other the conversation often is about the type of rod that you should use or the best reels or kinds of bait that are out there. When that is all they can talk about, next time, you should interrupt them and ask questions about the thing that is in between all those things and, because of that roll, is the most important thing of all, the line. The line is what controls all these things that you use for fishing.

If you look at it in the right perspective you could say that the rod is only there to hold the line. If it is true that the line is so important for bass fishing then why is it ignored so often. It could be that a fishing line is not stylish enough compared to the other equipment. A rod can be very imposing and with all the colors on the exotic looking bait these days it should be expected that the fishing line plays such a background role.

It may not look like it but fishing lines are technological as advanced as the other pieces equipment used for fishing these days.

There are different types of fishing line

A (bass) fishing line can be:

nylon monofilaments

At the moment the fused line, like Fireline, are the most popular lines to use. You should always buy premium fishing lines, they are more durable then the other lines out there. Another thing is that you should always look at the spot you are going to fish in and match the line to the condition and the environment you are at. Never leave home with just one line in your kit. Always take a wide range of line type with you.

First, you should consider the strength of the line. The strength of a line is measured by the force that is needed before the line breaks. As you know bass can give you a good run for you money when you are trying to catch one by putting a big fight so when you fish for bass the line must be able to take a large amount of pounds of force. On the other hand a perfect line would also withstand a lot of wear and tear so rubbing up against a rock or some bushes doesn't break it the first time it touches one.

You should use a line with a bigger diameter but the problem is that these are more visible to the fish so a small diameter would be wiser. There is always a balance you should find between the diameter and the conditions you are fishing in.

A stretching line is probably a better choice to use for fishing because it does not break that fast and can resist some rubbing. But if a line does not stretch an angler has a better feel for when the fish start to bite. A small tug on the line can be felt if there is no stretch factor.

In the end, you, the angler, needs to make up your own mind and balance the pros and cons of the line you choose to use.

The next time you go out with your fishing friends and they start to talk about their rods, reels and bait, stop them and ask what type of line they like to use just to make sure that the fishing line gets its equal share in the conversation, because it deserves it.
