Ocean headboat fishin?

  1. Fishin on the miss hatteras last year with a line counter with 20lb. test mono. Too much stretch. Any suggestionson, maybe some braid? The line counter is nice on accounta fishin at 150 ft. down you know where your at in relation to the bottom. info welcomed Dave.
  2. I would put some 30# braid on it. The smaller diameter will help you get your bait down and you could also use a floro or mono leader if needed.

  3. Dave,

    I'd call down before spooling up with braid. Many of the head boats down there will not allow it. It causes too many problems for them. But if they let you fish it, 30 lb. braid works just fine.
