    It makes NO difference to the fish; only the fisherperson. If she wants pink, let her have pink.

    i like the hi viz so i can see it near the boat to watch for angle and boat interference. i put moss green on the spinning rigs.

    Seems to make no difference at all. I run yellow, blue, and counter line (multi-color) just to be different than anyone else on the boat. Get her the pink and make her happy.

    Different colors on different reels makes it easier to untangle lines should that unfortunate occasion arise.

    I've got green, red, yellow and line counter multi color. I haven't seen any difference in how well or poorly they fish.

    There is something to be said for having different colored lines to help with untangling lines.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Color won't matter for halibut reels especially. I've seen cohos shy away from reels loaded with that bright green "Big Game" stren stuff. Halibut and other bottom fish could care less.
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Yeah, on my halibut setups I try to use a different color on each reel. Just like other here have said, it makes untangling lines a lot easier and I've never seen any difference in catch rate from one color to another.
