How often do y'all re-spool fluorocarbon line?

Every time I catch a SAL. Haven't had to change it yet.

For short leaders that stay off the reel? After every trip out, I re-tie so I have a fresh junction knot on fresh line. The braid main line backing it up seems to last a very long time.

I make that decision based on the condition of the line. Some rods I use more often than others so I don't change it as often on the ones that get less use. I change it often on my drop shot rod since it gets a lot of use and it is 12 pound test.

I'm still using the same Seaguar I spooled up in January (fishing nearly every weekend this year). Landed a 30 lb blue catfish on 12 lb test that bit a squarebill last weekend so it appears the line is still good to go.

For rods that get re-ties all the time (using Texas rigs and jigs in rocks, for example), I'll re-spool when the line on the spool gets so short that I can't make a long cast without getting down to the knot, and then I'll save that line for leader material. So, maybe a couple times a year on frequent re-tie rods. For what I pay for fluoro it d--- well better last that long.
