I've been doing a lot of trolling from my canoe lately and have been getting my line twisted really badly. I've been fishing with light gear spinning gear for over twenty years but have never really done much trolling like I am now. I'm using a light action spinning rod/reel with 6lb test and trolling small spinners. I suspect its because i have not been using a swivel leader because I just don't like adding all that extra silver shiny stuff. :think: Also, I've noticed that a lot of you spin fishermen are using braided line. Sounds good. Is it a lot more expensive?
