Just ask!

Tackle Tip of the Day

When fishing in deeper water or stronger current, try using flourocarbon leader instead of monofilament leader.  Flourocarbon sinks, allowing your bait to go slightly deeper and stay in the strike zone longer.  Flourocarbon is also less visible and more abrasion resistant than other leader materials.
