Hi Italo I just spooled up my reel with 20lb braid as opposed to something heavier for fall kings to be able to cast the j-13s farther. What leader should I use with it for salmon at the whirlpool casting j-13s and spoons? ThanksPosted on July 20th, 2016
Hi Jim, Going to the 20 lb. braid will definitely give you maximum casting ability with the Rapala J13.
I normally use a 20 lb. test fluorocarbon leader about 24″ long. Dark Chinooks do develop significant teeth and they can also roll in the line making the gill-rakers a hazard.
