Line strength for France?

 As I’m going to France next year and the average fish is 20 – 25lb, but there are bigger ones in the lake, so what line should I use? I normally use 12lb. Should i go up to 15 or even 20lb?  Could you let me know many thanks.
Hi Gary,
 When going after larger fish it is always best to use minimum 15lb line, check your local tackle shop for the different makes and qualities.  Most of our lakes ask for this line strength in France. Don’t forget your large 42″ landing net and extra large/thick mats.
Best wishes for tight lines,
