now that bass will have a hook in its mouth, and with todays hooks, it wont corrode out for years. depending on where the bass was hooked, that hook will kill the bass. better to be safe then sorry, and to help save a bass. but yes nj, do what you want.[/quote]

Bah. Humbug.

I would never go lower than 8lb test I use 17lb test so i know if i hook a big fish theres a lot less chance of losing him.

10lb is good but use what you want anything between 8-25 i would say is great for bass. IF you use braid though theres lots of Test sizes u can use.

4lb is good depending on what u use it for

me personally? i use:

4lb on ultra-light spinner 5'
6lb on light spinner 6'
10lb on 2 medium/medium light spinners 6'6"
14lb on 2 medium heavy bait-casters

each rod has a specific lure type that is usually on it
