Braided line for catfish?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how much difference braided line makes versus fluoro? I've always used fluoro up until now because it's less visible - but does that matter for every fish or just trout and salmon?

I'm looking to buy a new bottom setup to go after the unique Wels in Germany but - as usual - I can unlock the rods and reels sooner than I can unlock the lines. I can get braid but will have to wait a while for fluoro of the same test weight.

I think catfish have pretty bad eyesight IRL, so in theory braided line should be fine. Does anyone know if that's true in the game or should I wait and get the fluoro?

Suggest you give the braid a go, I'm pretty sure the cats don't take much notice of it. Maybe take some mono or fluoro leaders closest to the braids test as well (just in case).
