What pound test do you use for deep sea fishing?

I know that every species is going to give a different battle but what is the most common go-to pound test for general deep sea fishing?


  • This all depends on what youre fishing for and where you're at. But for things like small tuna, stripers, blues etc. 20 pound test line is fine. If youre trying to fish off bottom, go with 50 pound test.

  • @LifeIsGood I have a couple setups with 50 lb braided, but I have much more fun when I'm fishing with my 30 lb. setups to be honest. The fight is fun, you can still horse most everything but you can also break off MUCH easier if you need to without losing 100 yards of line.
