Going to lake Fork,TX need line advice
« on: June 07, 2017, 12:34:46 AM »

Is 30lb power pro braid enough strength for Fork?  I've fished there 20 years ago with 25lb mono but hoping the power pro 30 will be strong enough? Any help appreciated .

I took a guided trip there a few years ago.  The guide provided all the equipment etc.  We used braided line fishing frogs over the thick matted grass.  For the Shaky Head fishing over isolated structure / cover we used 20lb clear Fluorocarbon line.   During the afternoon we drug deep diving crankbaits over isolated structure / cover.  I think the line was like 15lb test Fluorocarbon.
