Sure.

Using a pike line in tropical heat is another matter though...

I have been doing it for years with no harm done The line from the picture below is fine and this was 2005 I think.

Thanks...I can find some trout lines cheap when compared to saltwater dedicated lines...I figure trout like colder water so their lines should function okay in the temperature range of striped bass..I wasn't sure about the salt having a bad effect though....

thanks for the help
