I'm interested in adding a wire line rig to the quiver for trolling for yellowtail. Monel is understandably the preferred choice over stainless but is it worth the added price?  Also curious how leaders are joined to wire line for trolling xraps.  Can anyone share their preferred wire type, reel, rod, leader rig of choice for yellowtail?  Thanks in advance.

Thanks Ironman.  What rod are you pairing with this?  Metal or ceramic eyelets, or roller guides?  I've had braided line destroy supposed ceramic eyelets so I'm wondering if wire does the same.

spectra works just as good and it is much lees of a pain in the neck to work with. If you need your lure to go deeper then just add a tropedo sinker before your leader. IMO monel is just NO FUN!!

I guess my first note was lost.
Connect with a Haywire twist. You need a swivel. A longer leader can keep any seaweed farther away at the swivel, but the lure will run higher. If you connect to backing best to use a swivel and not use the wire connection too long. Reel the connection on with a lowered rod. Too many runs over guides and the connection weakens. You need a heavy rod with all roller guides. I sure like the cranking power and wire spool of a lever drag Shimano TLD 50. Check out the combo price with Capt'n Harry's. Watch your lines, turns, and what other lines you put out. Sometimes that extra depth is critical for that dinner fish. I had a planer board for an extra ten feet catching five times more than the other line one day. Lastly, avoid being the one to have to reel in the fish. That TLD makes it a whole lot easier though.

That says it all Bryan "avoid being the one who has to reel in the fish"....the only thing worse than wire is a 20# spectra handline!

Better than catching nothing though. I wonder if there are any heavy duty products like the rubber snubbed for kokanee that could provide some stretch and shock absorption.
