Simple question...

Do any of you use colored line, and is so, what colors?

Are you against it, and why?

I use PowerPro only every reel in moss green. In most lakes, fish don't even notice it. In fresh water that is more clear or in salt, I use a 3 foot leader.

It puts a lot of fish in the boat.

I really like the color of Bass On for E. Texas lakes.

I saw some tournament fisherman's setups the other day, and there was some bright green and bright blue string on different reels. I've also seen blood red line as well.

I just wondered if any of you cats used colored line...

Been in this game a LONG time and say with confidence that line other than clear or moss green does spook fish. Doug Hannon put out a video on the subject 20+ years ago. You may catch some here and there (prolly in muddy/off colored water) but leave all that loud colored line to the perch jerkers! LOL
