After being broke off this past trip from a beefy red, I took a good look at my line and boy was it old . I found signs of wear even seen where it had been stressed and discolored . I know a lot of guys that fish heavy line or even braid. For me I like and have fished Berkeley 12 lb. mono for along time. I really haven’t had issues in the past with it breaking so that’s why I haven’t went to a braid. My question is how often are you guys restringing your reels ? Every few months , yearly or as needed? Yes I have since put some new line on my reel and I’ll set the scene for those that will ask what , when , where and how. Let’s say your fishing mercy brown saltwater , mostly marsh but some oyster beds . Always rigged with a 1/8 - 1/4 oz jigs and on a bait caster .
