Monofilament Line

Explain monofilament, copolymer, fluorocarbon, and braided lines to me, also best lines for different lures?

Bottom-bouncing baits (Texas-rigged worms, lizards and creatures; jigs; leadhead grubs; shaky head worms; tubes; etc.)?

Deep diving crankbaits?

Lipless crankbaits?

Jerkbaits?

Spinnerbaits and buzzbaits?

Swimbaits?

Topwaters?

Weedless frogs?

Monofilament is a limp line with low to moderate spool memory and average diameter as compared to its breaking strength. It has a considerable amount of stretch to it and does not transmit bottom contact and light bites as well as fluorocarbon. Monofilament has good abrasion resistance and knot strength with fairly low visibility. It casts easily and tends to float. Copolymer lines have properties similar to mono but are usually thicker and have better abrasion resistance. Fluorocarbon is not as limp as mono. It tends to be moderately to extremely "springy", which can lead to loops and tangles, especially on spinning reels. Although, fluoro is nearly invisible, has signifiantly lower stretch than mono, and transmits light bites and bottom contact extremely well. It sinks also and has a higher abrasion resistance than monofilament, but has about the same diameter/breaking strength ratio. Braid has an extremely small diameter compared to its breaking strength. It has no stretch and is extremly limp. Braid is pretty prone to knotting and backlashing during a cast and has the highest visibility of any line. It floats and is extremely abrasion resistant.

Bottom baits, flourocarbon's extremely low visibity, superior abrasion resistance ad enhanced ability to transmit bottom contact and light bites make it a good choice. Mono is good also.

Crankbaits, fluorocarbon transmits vibrations and bottom contact through the rod better than either monofilament or braid, allowing you to moniter your lure during the retrieve better, also 'cause fluorocarbon sinks, it helps diving lures dive even deeper.

Its fifty-fifty with jerkbaits. Fluorocarbon gets these lures down deeper, a big help is cooler water, but monofilament's better stretch helps prevent lightly hooked fish from coming off.

Monofilament's better stretch allows bass to engulf spinnerbaits and buzzbaits deeper for better hook sets... a good thing when bass are hitting short.

Heavy mono or copolymer line for big heavy swimbaits, fluorocarbon for smaller swimbaits in clear water.

Fluorocarbon sinks, not allowing the action of surface baits to shine. Braid floats, but the lack of shock-absorbing stretcginess means lightly hooked fish can easily throw the hook. Monofilament has the best blend of castability, flotation and stretchiness for topwater lures.

Braid is the best for frogs. It floats, helping prevent the line from getting entangled in submerged vegetation. Braid's small diameter makes casting these lures long distances, and high breaking strength means you'll land more fish hooked in the thicker stuff.
