Wondering what everyone uses for leader sizes when they float for steelhead. I typically use 6lbs flouro but after breaking off 2 or 3 times setting hooks on saturday I switched to the 10lbs flouro line I use for spin fishing out of frustration. Hooked into a fish within 15 minutes on my first hook set, nice 8ish lbs buck.
Maybe I just have a spool of bunk line but after that I'm considering just moving to 8 or 10 lbs permanently, unless I'm going for little creek shakers which I have a spool of 4lbs for. I don't think that visibility is a big difference between each size with how thin the 10lbs even is, but I have read that the slightly thicker line can effect how the bait floats around underwater.
What does everyone typically use? Can you recommend a line type that I should be using at 6lbs that I won't break off as easily? I use seaguar invisx line for the 6lbs, and I think the 10 is berkley vanish (which I have had great experience with, no fish have broken off on that stuff yet)
Thanks in advance
