instead of using a floro leader or is that just crazy talk
Caught lots of fish before braid/fluorocarbon, no reason it can't be done now.
Always wanted to test that theory. Hate to even imagine if it doesnt matter to realize all the $ ive spent on fluoro and even worse? Being bamboozled for all these years. Lmao!
Yes you absolutely can.
No one in the history of the world has ever caught fish on mono, anything else is fake news... you have to use fluoro! This helpful tip is courtesy of your friendly fluoro manufacturers association.
Absolutely you can use straight mono.I'm still one that does.It's one less,maybe two knots that won't fail.
For me personally when fishin yellows I have found it more necessary on bright sunny days.. if it's overcast I usually go without it unless proven necessary ...
For bft tuna it seems it's become a requirement at all times bait fishin to get bit...
I like the abrasion resistance for teeth on tuna and structure with yellows...
If you have ever seen a video taken underwater with the use of fluro it truly disappears. That being said yes you can still catch fish without it.
i have no experience i just read the reports. i was thinking of going in a couple weeks and i havent seen anyone mention using mono.
this was my thinking since im still learning. but i didnt want to drive all the way to SD just to step on my dick
Yes mono works I've caught 100's of fish with it but... I use floro with spectra backing now days. BFT are at times extremely line shy at times & floro is invisible. Just my 2 cents. Good luck & tight lines
Mono will work but if you can give yourself one more “edge” then why wouldn’t you? I wouldn’t fish bluefin without it personally. Fishing’s all about chances and some days you have to take advantage of every one you can. Now if it’s wide open stupid fishing then you could skip it.
cuz im broke and wanted to save $50 but i guess i better get it.
is a uni to uni knot ok for mono to floro
I'd use a three turn Surgeons knot or Seaguar knot. Both are easier and stronger than a uni-uni.
Personally, I use fluoro for tuna, especially BFT, and mono for YT. For schoolie YFT on the ridge I just use mono.
I would not use a uni to uni unless it’s an emergency. I’d use the seaguar knot myself. Good news is the floro if kept somewhere cool and out of the sun will last a long time. I only use 4 feet at s time.
i looked up that seagaur knot. looks easy af
Remember that flouro does not stretch and tied straight to spectra you have no play in your line. I have lost fish this way, now I like to have spectra>mono>flouro to have some play. But 3 knots yikes!
Fluoro does stretch, just not as much as mono.
uuummmm yes. There was a time before braid and Floro. Fish were caught, and fish were lost. Just like now.
