Leader recommendation for 15-20lb Mi river Salmon
Hello everyone, I'll be going after my first salmon in 35 years or so. I'll be fishing the Betsie River in Northern Michigan, and I wasn't sure what leader to use for such a quest. I've got some Mirage 9ft 10lb leaders, but a buddy said he had on 12lb and was breaking off fish FROM the same river I'll be fishing next weekend. Would 16lb be to much, and what are the downsides to a bigger leader?
I'm going fishin for salmon!
