What’s the best line for Crappie fishing?

Crappie fishing used to be considered “easy fishing”, but it’s quickly becoming very competitive and technical. Crappie tournaments are popping up all over the country and competitive anglers want the best line to catch bluegill, sunfish, perch, and crappie.

In the past, a simple pole with any line and a few minnows was all you needed to catch crappie. Today’s crappie anglers often choose ultralight spinning outfits, jigging rods or trolling rods for fishing crappie.

Crappie anglers have typically had many choices of lines. However, anglers who used to fish with 2lb monofilament or fluorocarbon are moving to specialized crappie fishing line like FINS Crappie braided fishing line for fishing for crappie in clear water or in standing timber.

It’s funny to think that fishing line hasn’t had them same attention, hype, or marketing as all the fancy  fishing gear that we’re all fascinated with. With all the fancy gizmos, electronics and accessories mounted on today’s boats, one thing remains the same. The most important link between the angler and fish is always the line.
