    Yes, I used 6 lb trilene for a long time. I had to switch to 8 lb because I got tired of breaks at my friends pond.

      The rod must have a line weight of at elast 6 lbs. otherwise, you better br fishing for rock bass.

        I love to fish smallies with line as light as 1 and 2 lb test. Small in-line spinners like rooster tails and panther martins work very well.

          Yes they are alot of fun for bass. I use a line in the 6-8 pound range and I use RoosterTails, Panther Martins, or beetlespins.

            I've caught 5-6lb bass on an ultralight spinning rig with 4lb test, so yes.

              Yes just like Golfing and teufelhunden said, inline spinners with about 6 pound line. If you're a bait caster 17 pound line guy you're going to have to vary you technique here you can't just horse them in you'll have to work them. Anything over 6 pounds is going to be a lot of fun!

                Very easily I've caught many fish including muskie on an ultralight with 6 Lb. test on so it shouldn't be a problem fishing with one. I've even caught bass on 4 lb test line fishing for bluegill with a nightcrawler.

                  I like to rig my ultralight with 2 or 4lb test line, normally trilene xl or mr crappie line works really well with ultralight setups.

                  I use micro versions of rattle traps and crankbaits that are 1/32oz or so, they work perfectly with the ultralight setups and the fight is intense on the tackle.

                    2 pound test is too much of a pain in the rear to tie for me. 4 pound on an ultralight spinning rig is a lot of fun, and the Bagley Honey-B is the best ultralight crankbait ever made. The ultralight version of the Rebel crawfish runs a close second. I also like the 4 inch Slider worms.

                        I have some very busy days using 4 lb test and a Rebel Crawfish. Loads of fun.

                          I just caught a 4.3lb "white" bass while crappie fishing with 6lb. line and a minnow. IT WAS A BLAST !

                              Yes and I use Roostertails for me.
