Hi Bobby,

Braid is almost impervious to degradation by ultraviolet light.

On the other hand monofilament fishing line storage life is severly reduced by exposure to direct sunlight.


Going by the above I'd think that braid would have a much longer shelf life. I do however make it a point to rinse my reel and line in freshwater overnight after a round of sea fishing.

Cheers
Bops

Hi Guys,
One of the greatest advantages with using braid is its thin dia. This makes it possible to fish heavier lb lines on lighter/smaller reels. A trend tackle manufacturers are catching onto these days. A real boon while one is out casting the whole day.

Back to what CC had origionally said. Braid or mono for murral.... Do you guys think fishing for murral with 40lb to 20lb braid is overkill? I think murral is no great fighter and is often overhyped!

I've in the past been guilty of using 20lb mono and 'bullying' big fish to the bank. :oops: No contest! The odds were in my favour right from the start. I now use 12lb to 15lb mono for all my murral spinning. Still think that's on the heavier side.

A question.... What lb line, mono/braid do you think would be ideal for murral :?:

Regards,
Mighty Mahseer.

20lb for Murral is definately an overkill.

I have often use 6lb line(even 4lb) in salt water (I now switched to 10 because of lure loss rocks), what you need to get right is the knots as line with such fine dia often cuts into itself. This is especially true for fish that hit the lure really hard like threadfin, GT's and ladyfish. (I have never caught a Murral)

With line so light, I normally tie a Biminni twist or a Spiderhitch into a double line and then a uniknot to the lure. Even then you must take off about a meter or 2 of line after you land 2 fish. You cannot tie a shocker to such light line and the knot that you join the 2 lines will greatly reduce the strenght of the lighter line so that a 6lb line could be reduced by 50% even.

In theory a Biminni Twist if tied properly retains 100% of the line strength. I was just reading Lefty Kreh's book the other day and he says that the spiderhitch is not a good knot to tie (for the purpose I have described above) from my experience however it worked very well for me. From what fish I have caught, as small as they are, I think Ladyfish hit the lure the hardest.

HI Owen,

90% of my fishing is done with lures so I do not run into the issues you mentioned below.

I use VMC hooks mostly. Trebles, and bacause I fish with lures, I normally have a leader with a swivel at one end to the main line is always tied to the swivel.

The breakoff I was mentioning happens at the strike/point of impact.

I have never eaten Murral but I hear they are very tasty, we get loads of live Murral here where I live, even our super markets sell them live, but I have never bought them. Wife has a serious snake phobia. But any these fish are farmed and there is a vast difference in flavour freerange v/s fish on a farmed diet.
