Problems with sharks while tarpon fishing
I’ve tried wire so I can save my hooks,
I go through A LOT. While I’ve caught a few tarpon on wire leader, it seems they are far more likely to take a bait on a mono leader in my experience. Would I be better off using a heavier mono like 300-400 lb test, or should I try a lighter wire like #8-#9? Any thoughts on which would have less visibility in the water when they’re being leader shy? Or should I just stick with the 130 lb mono I get better action with and accept the crazy amount of bite offs from the sharks? 100 lb mono worked even better but the bigger fish over 130 lbs have frayed through it in the past since I am on land and can’t pursue after them.
