Reel in fishing line for the way you fish
Every type of fishing requires the right fishing line. If you're using an ultralight spinning combination, 4 lb. monofilament is ideal. For saltwater fishing, 30 lb. braided line is better. Sears has those types and everything in between. Your fly fishing options include floating and weighted line. Leader line in a variety of tests is made by Cortland, Redington and Seaguar. Berkley produces several different fishing line series for spinning and baitcasting reels. Micro Ice is tough enough for ice fishing. Trilene Transoptic and Vanish are low-visibility lines similar to Stren fishing line. Trilene Big Game comes in test weights to 40 lbs. Matching your fishing line to the spool size of your reel, the weight of the lures and the size fish you're after will indicate which line is right for you.
Maintaining your fishing reel is the key to smooth casting, easy reeling and good longevity. Penn and Ardent make reel cleaner that removes grit and debris that can wear down internal components. Once it's clean, adding gear and bearing lubrication from Abu Garcia or Eagle Claw will protect it and ensure excellent performance. If you'd rather repair than replace a favorite reel, Sears carries Boca Bearing replacement bearings for many of today's most popular reels. South Bend reel holders are affordable and clamp quickly onto the rail of any boat. For use with larger poles, Scotty rod holders offer greater strength. They're available in single and double holders with locks to keep the rod butts secure when a fish strikes the bait.
