    I run all my gear on 30lb maxima ultra green and sometimes (40lb leaders, but thats going for the big bucks in okanagan or shu etc) , but I would say no lighter then 12lb but 15-20lb would be a good range to have depending on what size fish your trolling for.

    I thought that would be over kill for trout up to 6-7 lbs?

    I use 15 pound test, anything less then that and the line gets twisted to shit.

    My favorite line is "that's why they call it fishing and not catching!"

    Had to.

    That's an awesome tip. Line twisting seems to be a b?tch with gang trolls even with multiple swivels.

    I was using the same rod for casting and bobbing but I might have to have setup 2 rods for trolling and one for casting - with lighter line on it.
