Need some advice......I bar fished for springs last year for a solid week, sometimes putting 12 hour days or longer......I currently have 40 lb maxima on my rods and am looking to save a bit of $ this year for my annual trip. I checked the line and it seems to have no kinks etc, and they have been stored in a basement closet all year. Do you guys think I could get away with using it again this year? With it being on the reel since last summer it does not seem to be as straight bit still looks strong. I am looking to put the money I usually spend on line every year elsewhere (like my gas tank ) I thought about cutting off about 10 yards or so but also don't want to leave myself too short.....Any suggestions? I would hate to lose a 40 'lber because I was cheap, but these fishing expeditions are getting a lot more pricey!!
