    Okumas will hold a lot of line so spool some junk line on the core to build up space then add the good stuff. I'm using 10# P-line hi-vis and I only spool about 350 feet of it on each one. P-Line is expensive and I can't see waisting money to spool on line that will never get used. Also, the line counter reels are the most accurate when they are full so don't cheap out by not filling your spools.

    G-3, does that mean that you fish from the front? Would you use the same type equipment? Let the line out as far as pulling? Use spider rig?

    Thanks.

    I use 30-8 power pro line but where I troll there is alot of structure that loves to eat crank baits. If I fished the Big 4 all the time I would use 10 lb mono like slab said.
    Thanks creekslick. That chart is really helpful.

    I push em also from the front of the boat. I use 5 poles and a 2 oz. wt with a 30 in trailer and a snap swivel. I fish in shallow water a lot.

    Ha ha ha...your right, But it is a real good thread with good info on pulling cranks and I just thought it best to keep it on topic if we can. Sorry that I kinda got it going off topic a little.

    Creek, if you vouch for these folks I'll order 4 of those tomorrow. That's $15.00 lower than any I've seen. Thanks.
