I want to know what pound test of fluorocarbon I should use on my Shimano Baitrunner 4000D. I put 15 lb. braid on it and I do not know if I need a higher poundage of fluorocarbon. I generally go for pickerel and bassPosted on April 9th, 2015
The lb/test of fluorocarbon leader should be dictated by the size of fish you are targeting. For medium size bass and walleye 10-12 lb. test should be fine. If you are targeting trophy bass over 5 lb. and trophy walleye over 8 lb., you may want to go up to 20 lb. fluorocarbon leader.
