For walleye per se, you do not need to use a steel leader at all, as they won’t be able to bite through your mainline. However, if the water you are fishing in contains pike or muskies, you can use a 10-15lb fluorocarbon leader instead of steel, in order to prevent bite-offs.
Hi, I'm Max. I have been an avid angler for over 20 years and I just could not imagine a life without this wonderful hobby! To me, fishing is a passion and a lifestyle. The joy of the catch, the bait, the tackle and the outdoors in general is what Strike and Catch is all about.
