Howdy all. I am a bass fisherman that loves offshore, but only get out every other year or so. This forum is awesome, keep the pics and reports coming.

I have noticed (from the pics on this board & tv) that most of the line used in offshore fishing is brightly colored. Why?

It obviously doesn't spook the fish.

Thanks.

Welcome to the site. There are allot of good anglers here.

Bright colored line "should" be used for trolling. It is used to make the lines visible so you can tell what they are doing, tangles, crossed-up ect.

Have fun

colorful line is easier to see........

you can track where your lures are running in your spread when you're making turns and sech, even if you're unable to actually see the lure ..............

the high-vis line doesn't run all-the-way to the lure...........

i use leader material that's either clear or blue on my lures that's anywhere from 3' to 20' long ('cept for steel of course, and then there's shiny and coffee-colored steel)................ so, the 'hi-vis' doesn't actually run all-the-wat to the lure

also if your lines wrap, it pays to be able to see which way they're wrapped-up 20 yds behind the boat for untangling'em on-the-run, or fightin' a fish
