    I am going fishing for corbina soon and I heard that they are very line shy. Should I just to use my trout setup with 4 lb mono instead if my medium action rod with 4000 size reel and 30 lb braid?

    Yes use light mono line. Most people use 6lb. They are usually in water barely over their fins. Be careful if you are in the water, cast in all directions before you move because you will spook them away.

    I personally wouldn't use 4lb because I have a tendency to hook a lot of large things like shovelnose shark and bat rays, (this morning) lol also big croaker might peel all of your line off if you use 4 lb

    Nothing bigger than 6#, but better off with 4# straight mono or at least a mono leader.

    If you’re sight fishing, yes. Otherwise c-rig is the norm

    Be careful on how hard you crimp the line.

    Fold a tiny piece of paper and put in groove of your split shot. It won’t slip, and acts as a buffer for your line.
