It’s been just over 16 years since braided line took the bass fishing world by storm, but today, perhaps more than ever, anglers still question where, when, how and why to use it.
Just north of Paradise Island in the upper reaches of Florida’s Lake Tohopekaliga, the depth gradually eases down to about four feet where, if you can find the outermost edge of the hydrilla, you have a pretty good chance of getting a bass that’s more than 10 pounds.
Today many bass professionals and other leading anglers fish fluorocarbon for the benefits it offers beyond its stealth factor. Strength, abrasion resistance, sensitivity and the ability to take lures deeper, or sink them faster, are just a few.
More species and situations are tailor-made for goby-style softbaits and anglers who stay on the leading edge of this trend will reap the rewards of innovation.
The beauty of fluorocarbon line, as NAFC member and trophy-bass specialist Bill Siemantel explains, “is that it has its own niche.”
