In my experience, it really depends on how well you can conceal the line and how natural your presentation looks. If you’re fishing in open water where there’s no cover to conceal your bait or line, then a braided line may spook fish more than a monofilament line.
However, if you’re fishing in heavily-vegetated areas or around structures, I’ve had better luck using braided lines because they’re less visible than monofilament lines.
However, other anglers believe that the color of the braided line (which is often black) may be more visible underwater and scare fish away from the bait or lure. At this time, there is no definitive answer as to whether or not braided line spooks fish.
A braided line is great for finesse fishing because it has a smaller diameter than a monofilament line and it’s less visible in the water. And since it doesn’t stretch like monofilament line does, you can feel every nibble from the fish. So if you’re looking for something that will help you catch more fish, then I recommend using a braided line.
Some anglers believe that the braided line spooks fish because it makes a lot of noise as it moves through the water, while others claim that the fish can’t see the line as well as they can see the monofilament line and thus are less likely to be spooked.
In my experience, I’ve had both good and bad luck with braided lines depending on the situation. What matters most is how you use it and how confident you are with presenting your bait in a way that won’t scare the fish away.
Many anglers prefer to use a monofilament line because it is less visible and has a quieter feel in the water than braided line. However, monofilament line is also less durable than a braided line and can break more easily. So it’s up to each angler to decide what type of line they prefer to use.
