Happiness is a big walleye! Normally I use 10 lb Vanish fluorocarbon leader material, but lately I’ve use the new Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon Professional grade in the green tint shade. You can use 6 to 10 lbs test with this line. I’ve used 6 lb test to rig Red Tails and could lift 22 inchers over the side of the boat with the 6 lb line without it breaking. I’ve never been able to do that with any other 6 lb line. I’m actually the one who played with the severe bending of the Slow Death hook. It took me about 18 months to get it right. I’ve used it with Gulp Crawler, the tail end of a six inch crawler. Also the Gulp earthworms in a jar work and the 3 inch Gulp Fry. Good luck and enjoy!
