Hi ppl,

I'm from Sydney and I'm so addicted to squidding after catching my first squid. As a result, I just ordered Egi rod and reel from online. Right now, I'm using my soft plastic rod and 6lb line for squidding.

Before I go ahead to buy the line, can you guys give me some advice as I am very new to squidding? Below are some background.

- Reel is 2500
- Should i go with 6lb or 8lb line or 10lb?
- Squid jig size 1.8 - 2.5 now, will be buying 3.0 and 3.5 soon
- Mainly squidding around jetty and wharf. When my new egi rod and reel arrived, i'll be going for rock squidding as well.

If I use 10lb line, will I have any problem with casting 1.8 jig? Do you think i'll have problem with 6lb line + jig size 3.5 for rock squidding?

Please help :)

Thanks.

Hey mate,
what you are talking about is fine tuning. You'll get away with most lines, however you did ask. Get a 4 carrier braid for best results as light as you are willing. 3.3kg egi specific line will be sweet for anything from 1.5 to 4.0 jigs. Any spool over a 100m will be plenty of braid. Most Egi line spools are around that anyway so you don't have to fork out for unecessary line you'll never see. Have fun. Cam
