The TRUTH About Braided Line Color
Right off the bat, braided line color does NOT truly make a difference to the fish.
It is more about angler preference than anything.
Typically, if you are fishing inshore you will have leader material tipped at the end of your line for a few reasons.
The first being it will act as a shock absorber because braided line does not have any give to stretch.
You need the stretch of the leader to prevent pulled hooks and line break-offs.
Additionally, you utilize a leader for abrasion resistance.
Braided line actually does not have much abrasion resistance although the common belief is it does.
Lastly, the leader is attached to your lure or bait which is closest to the fish and looks invisible to them in the water.
Your braided main line should not be anywhere near the fish when you are retrieving your lures or baits.
The fish only focuses in on what is closest to their food, that being your lure or bait presentation.
The clear leader material you choose to use is what will be most important to the fish.
In terms of braid color, it is most important to the angler as a visual reference.
This means knowing where your line is in the water.
Depending on what color is easiest for you to see on a given day should be the color you choose to fish with.
If you are fishing during the day, colors like white or yellow could be tough to see.
Similarly, at night, you would want a high visibility color that will not blend into the night.
Braided line color is mainly a visual reference for the angler as opposed to a preference for the fish.
Other types of braided lines are camouflage and change colors along the line based on a certain distance.
The reason behind this is to know how much line you have out at a given time.
This is important for bottom fishing or trolling because you need to have your lines out at a specific length which the color change indicates.
If after viewing this video and reading this article you are still unsure of the impact of braided line color, the best solution is to use the moss green color of braid.
It will blend into seagrass along flats and muddy bottoms as well as marsh creeks with similar backgrounds.
Green or dark grey colored braided line will match the environment you are fishing in and still give you the visual reference needed to know where your line is.
The truth is, if your line gets close to the fish, the fish will feel it in the water before they see it.
The thinness of the braid does not create a massive disturbance in the water which is actually more important than the color of the line.
