Tips for successful trout fishing Jim Matthews ..

- Discover the best fishing line recommendations for each lure and technique in bass fishing. Know exactly which type and size line to use for spinnerbaits, crankbaits, swimbaits, drop shot, topwater and more. Follow the link above to get your Fishing Line Cheat Sheet. You'll understand the differences between fluorocarbon, monofilament and braided lines and why each works for particular lures and tactics. These fishing line recommendations will give you greater confidence in your bass fishing endeavors and give you greater versatility in your lure selections.

Float Fishing Line Recommendation - I suggest one of the high visibility braided lines like, Tuf Line XP, for your main line because it floats, is easy to cast, and has no line stretch. Try 20-30# test Tuf Line, Power Pro, or Fireline for your main line and the same leaders mentioned above. Please remember that you need to use special for these lines.

Drift Fishing Line Recommendation - The clear choice of Steelhead and Salmon anglers for many years has been Maxima Ultragreen. It delivers excellent performance, is easy to use, has consistent reliability, and is relatively invisible under water. You can use this line both for your main line and as a leader.

Steelhead line - 10-12# for main line and 8-10# for leaders
Salmon line - 15-30# for main line and 15-30# for leader
