Fishing Line question...how much is enough
A GB said make sure arbor is full. My opinion is a minimum of 300 yds of new mono.
It depends on reel capacity and what you are rigging, rigger rods, dipsys, leadcore or copper. The amount of line on all my setups varies because I want the reel filled to capacity because you get back more line per turn of the reel when it is full. Also remember when you have a big fish on the is taking a lot of line your drag is getting tighter and rather than tighten you should loosen it up and wait until it tires then re-adjust your drag.
