Light tackle is a term used when fishing inshore and flats fishing.
Whether you are targeting trout, redfish cobia, tarpon, or shark, there is no more effective presentation of live bait than using light diameter line.
Generally, 6 to 15 lb. test is used for targeting all species, except for cobia and tarpon, which requires 30 lb. test line.
Light tackle allows live bait to look more natural with less line dragged through the water. All bait is fished with fluorocarbon leader to make the line tied to the hook look virtually invisible.
Light tackle fishing means more bites, which in turn means more fish caught and more action.
