    Smile What's the best test line Lb for Crappie ?...

    Hello guys, I was just wondering what's the best test line to use for fishing for crappie, I heard to use 6 lb test line but not too sure, I'm coming back into fishing after being out of it for 10 yrs lol. What i got now is Spiderwire 4 lb, That should be good enough right. Everything is starting to come back slowly to me it seems that I slightly forgot a few things lol. I hate it when that happens...

    Different styles of crappie fishing require different weight lines IMO. For spider rigging I prefer 8lb line. For trolling I use 6lb. Lots of folks like 4 lb for tightlining but I just stick with the 6.

    BTW, welcome to the boards.
    Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

    Thnx buddy, I was thinking that 4 lb sounds about right though, it seems pretty light for my strike king and rooster tails...

    I use 4lb on most of my rods, trolling 95% of the time, just me tho.
    GO BIG ORANGE !

    I meant to behave, but there were just way too many other options available at the time.

    I use 20 pound braid for the main line. I tie on a ball bearing swivel and a 24"-36" mono leader, usually 4-6 pound test. I usually fish for crappie from shore with floats. I always attach my bobber above the swivel. I like it that way because if the jig gets hung up and I can't get it unstuck, I can break it off without losing my float.
    Don't worry, catch crappie.
