Hi Italo. I just picked up fishing again as a hobby this year and I’m a bit confused with figuring out what size of line I should be using. I live in central Alberta as is where I’ll be fishing mostly around the province. Caught a couple pike the other day but they snapped my line. Currently have a 10lb braided line with a 3-6ft 8lb fluorocarbon leader. I have an Ugly Stik GX2 Shakespeare reel combo. I’ve been thoroughly watching your YouTube videos for better tricks, techniques and appropriate tackle to use for certain species. Everything has been extremely well explained and very helpful. Keep the videos coming. God bless.

Hi Josh, thank you for your kind words and glad you have been enjoying our TV shows and YouTube videos. Your medium-spinning outfit sound perfect. I would suggest you use 30 lb. braid (8lb mono diameter), if you are targeting walleye where you have a good chance of hooking pike. I would also use at least a 12lb fluorocarbon leader and even go up to 20 lb. if there are bigger pike around.
