Flouro 4lb vs 6lb and releasing fish. Choice?
Hi all, I am fishing smaller streams that you can cast across. Stocked streams. I release all the fish I catch. I'm using a medium to light 5 ft rod which I believe is an IM6 blank with a 1500 series sedona reel. Ever year I seem to hook into a beast at least once. Beast being a good 5lb 20 inch plus fish. I have landed said beast but after playing the fish for awhile and being very careful. I' m pretty sure what I have on now is 4lb, but I have to double check. Just like everyone, my main challenge are side stream tangles and logs I'm trying to steer the fish away from upon immediate hookup and during the fight.
Any thoughts on 4lb vs 6lb?
