How long is fishing line good for, when should it be replaced?

I’m getting set to go out to lake erie with my son. I found my fishing pole which hasn’t been used for about 5 to 10 years. The line on the reel seems like it is still in good shape and strong. Should I replace it, or will I be fine with what’s on there?
Leaving soon so please be quick to respond. Thanks…
I’m on it. Thanks for the help folks. Lake Erie yellow perch selling at 14.95 a pound here. Here we come!

Mathematically how long can I make a fishing line? Is it possible to make a 100 mile line?

Just theoretically, let’s say I would have a fishing line that is 1 mile long and I would buy 100 spools, can you make a line that is 100 miles long and fully working?

If not, what are the obstacles I would have to overcome to make a fishing line that long?

What would be the best lure to go with for winter largemouth bass fishing in eastern long island?

I know deeper waters and slower retrieve…but its still tempting to use my old standby a light colored jitterbug. Is it pointless to use a top floating jig in the winter? I fished a rattletrap and jig & pig at Ronkonkoma for six hours yesterday with nary a bite. Has anyone fished the Northwestern side(opposite of the falls) of Southard’s with any success? Whats the best overall advice for today’s trip? Thanks!!!

When fishing, how long should you wait after the fish first bites to try and reel it in?

I have been fishing a few times now. Sometimes when I feel a fish biting, I reel in too soon and it goes away. Is there anyway to make sure that the fish is caught on the hook and when should I start trying to reel it in after I feel the bite?
I go fishing in a river with live worms.

I am looking for some cool things to get my fiance for fathers day(he’s the father of my child) I was thinking of a few things and was wondering if anyone has had any opinions on them…whether it’s a waste of money or not. First of all there’s a wireless fishfinder that goes on your wrist like a watch it’s like $60 and then they have scales and i was wondering which one would be better a digital or regular…and i was thinking about a pair of waders but i’m wondering if they’ll get in the way of his commando fishing styles(last time we were knee deep in mud fishing from the waterline…there’s not a doubt in my mind he’d dive in for a fish..lol)will they make you stick in the mud more like shoes do?and last but not least is a
