I always use a steel leader when fishing for pike and never for walleye. Never had a walleye bite my line off, but have had many pike do so. Unless you hook a pike on the very front of his mouth, he's likely to cut off regular line. If the hook's a little farther back or on the side, with his thrashing turns, your line probably will get cut. Walleyes tend to get hooked farther forward and their teethy mouths aren't long like a pike so you are safe without.
