What is the best line to use for fishing with crank baits?

What line does everyone prefer to use when flipping them crank baits? Do you want the stretch, abrasion resistance, visibility? What line is best with crank baits?


  • I always run braided line with crank baits because i like to fish crank baits around structures, grasses, and coverage. This usually means lots of snags and hang ups. Braided is by far the most resilient line available so it makes sense to run it. I do match the color with the water i'm fishing. Usually green or blue braided.

  • @InsuranceBrokerDon I might be a little old school but My crankbait rod has monofilament on it and it has caught plenty of fish.
