Well i have to respool but i only have a huge roll of 10lb mono. It seems kinda thin but will it be able to bring a bluefish in from a pier? idk 14 inches-18 inches

I mean i can easily go buy a 20lb line but there is like 600 yards of the 10lb just laying there. I mean i can find a lot of uses for the line but i mean im just wondering, im not trying to say im too lazy to go buy 20lb mono for like 3 dollars.

Yea it should be good enough! Like they said since its 10 lb test adjust the drag, its funner when you let them run anyways! Most line overtest by like 5 pounds so it will break at like 15, so no worries!

10 is a lil light, but should be ok if u go easy.


obviously a 2-3lb blue or schoolie isnt going to spool you, but reeling it up 15' in the air dead weight, can be alot different.

Good catch Jesse, I missed the part about the pier. Simple solution, add a shock.

I use 8-12 lb test for trout, bluefish (taylors), and Stripers, No real problem. Though it sounds like you have a large reel and rod. The stiffness of the ro may be the real issue.
