I use 4lb for all my trout fishing except at night where I may go heavier on the fly gear and use up to 10lb…sea runs are just ocean going brown trout, so it makes sense to target them similar breaking strain line, an exception would be targeting them at the rakaia gut where big fish in heavy water necessitates the use of heavier line. It’s always a trade off, use heavier gear and reduce hits, the action of your spinner, and casting distance or go heavy and have the peace of mind that once a fish is hooked your chances of landing it are improved..as I said above, I prefer to take my chances with the light stuff :smile:
