by micro do you mean the fox micro jerks

if so minimum 50 lb braid, and wire can be heavier. avoid the solid micro jerkbait traces as they are far too short

small is a relative term what sort of size/weight are they?

small to me for pike is around an ounce in weight but for perch and chub a 2gm lure is small

for the pike small lures for me are cast on 50lb braid

for chub and perch its 20 lb braid, and 28lb wire where pike are present or 40lb FC where they are not
oh and if i go ul its 8lb braid and 10lb fc traces but that is only for lures up to 4-5 gm on a rod that is 130cm long and the reel that is tiny

heres a quick list of what i use
for ultra light lures 1-5gm
rod fladen micro ul
reel cortland cx ultralite loaded with 8lb braid and ss of 4lb mono

for little lures 3-15 gm
daiwa samuri 7 ft spinning rod
okuma interceptor 030 with 20lb braid or 8lb mono(where no pike are present)

normal everyday average joe lures 15-50gm
nash 70 jerkbait rod
penn 940 levelmatic reel loaded with 65lb braid
or for awkward banks
9 ft drennan esox spinflex
050 okuma undertaker loaded with 50lb braid

jerkbaits big plastics etc weighing up to 6 ounces and more on occasion
shimano ..... cant remember the name of the rod of the top of my head and its buried under pipe lagging so it floats
shimano corsair reel loaded with 80lb (0.50 mm dia) braid

so have a look at where your lures fit into it and balance your gear accordingly
