Hi Italo, is there an advantage to using thinner line when fishing in current? I think thicker mono will get dragged more? I still fish, with a sliding sinker rig. Thank you

Definitely. The thinnest line you can use is a braid. For example 30 lb. braid only has the line diameter of 8 lb. test monofilament line. Braid will be much more “hydrodynamic” in the water meaning the it will drop faster and won’t be affected as much in current situations. Also, because of the no-stretch you can also feel hits better and get better hook-sets…God bless you.

Make sure to check the fishing videos on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel and if you have any questions just email them to me at Ask Italo throughout our website.
