I've already wasted 30 or 40 bucks just trying to get some gear together for the rest of this season. I tried Berkley Big Game fishing line, and I realize now that I would need to use a baitcaster for heavy line like that. The thing I didn't like about the Berkley line is that when I put it on my reel, after I had it all set up as soon as I opened the bail, due to the stiffness of the fishing line it kind of puffed outwards and flew right back off my reel. 100% of the line I put on just flew right off. I think this line is crap, I wouldn't recommend it even if you were using a baitcaster. Also, I bought some 30lb Spiderwire, but I failed to read the description on the packaging before I bought it and I am not looking for a line that is made to sink like flourocarbon.
Does anyone know of a 10lb line that they've used that works well for a spinning reel? Also can anyone recommend a good 30lb test line that they know works that I could use on a baitcaster to switch out when I'm fishing in a good spot for larger fish? I'm not worried about price, I'm willing to spend probably 15-20 bucks if I have to on the 10lb, and 20-30 bucks for the 30 lb. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
