New cold-water coral occurrences in the Eastern Ionian Sea: Results from experimental long line fishing


One drawback is that it can be difficult to break if caught. A braided line is generally more expensive than a monofilament line. Braided lines can put more stress on reel components, rods, and line guides, which can lead to premature wear and tear. The braided line may not be the best choice when fishing in crystal-clear waters. Braided lines can be very difficult to untangle if entangled. Most braids require a much sharper instrument to trim properly and small tags to keep them from slipping. There are many braid lines on the market today and they are constantly improving. The braided line offers a new tool for today's angler. Used correctly, it can make you more successful and more confident in big game fishing. Monofilament nylon lines are suitable for many fishing situations. It's a bit forgiving in that it's stretchy and won't break. This allows you to use different nodes. Trilene Knot, Improved Clinch Knot, Palomar Knot, Uni Knot. It is less likely to look like a fish than a braided line. Suitable for spinning reels as it has less memory than fluorocarbon lines. It doesn't sink as easily as fluorocarbon and is woven to some extent, making it ideal for fishing with floating baits and soft plastic jerk baits. In some cases, there are also disadvantages, but they were not questioned. Blades are not great, they have pros and cons. On the plus side, the braid is much thinner than monoline compared to monoline of the same gauge. Because it is thinner than the same gauge, the flight distance from the cast is increased. The braid hardly stretches. Things grow quite a bit. Stretching your line while fishing can be both good and bad. The lack of stretch in the braid increases sensitivity, but if a large fish hits the bait near the boat (or shore), the stretch in the mono is important, making the difference between a lunker and a broken line or rod landing. I think it could mean things are barely visible, but braids are very noticeable. Many anglers use mono or fluoro leaders along with braided lines to solve the visibility problem. This adds nodes to your setup, with each node becoming a potential point of failure. The thing is usually tied directly to the hook or bait. One knot and two knots reduce potential points of failure. Blades are not as durable as monos when fishing sharp rocks. Rocks and shells can tear braids quickly, but mono can withstand these conditions. Many people add mono or fluoro hook links when fishing in such areas. But back to the problem of extra knots. There are many types of fishing lines. Monofilament, braid, fluorocarbon, wire, etc. They all have their time and place. Braided fishing lines made with Dyneema/Spectra fibers are the strongest. Both the Spectra and Dyneema are made from HMPE (High Modulus Polyethylene), but the larger diameter Dyneema blade has a slightly different molecular structure, resulting in increased strength. Most commercial fishing lines are not stronger than our 550 lb test. In practice, there are few occasions where a test line thicker than this is needed, and few reels can handle it. On the other hand, stronger fishing lines are available. Braided fishing line has various pound tests from 100 to 1000 lbs.
