believe me....I tried that......
...ummm...I've seen Fishslayer catch alot of fish, in fresh and salt (but not on a boat). He likes light line and he makes it work for him. I am a light line advocate also. Most of the fish that we catch in creeks with spinning reels are caught on 2# line, and I've landed 20# salmon on 8# line...yes you do break off occasionally, but you get hooked up alot more. Just keep your drag light, and post pics
PS: Fishslayer: I found some of those "special" weights that you like at Rick's in Mammoth, $0.99. Not quite as cheap as you get them...I used them to turn my floating line into a sink tip and it worked great
That's what I caught those huge brooktrout on...with a pink fly...the fish had black fins with very sharply defined white leading edges.
