Default jig fishing with braided line...

Any of you have any success with braided lines fishing jigs? Thinking of trying it for deeper jig fishing 20' +.. Been using 10 lb mono but wondering how much more sensitivity braid will give me..

You won`t need braid unless you are fishing the mats.

stick with flourocarbon.

i use braid in murky waters. also in: docks, pilings, wood, tullies, anything that a bass can wrap you around or break you off.


i use fluoro from 12-20lb in open water, but check for line damage frequently.

I tried Power Pro last year and if I was fishing rocks it kept breaking on me. Hate that stuff. Stay with mono or Floro with jigs.

Braid will improve your sensitivity about 200% over mono. Use a fluoro leader joined by uni to uni knot

Braid around rocks is no bueno. Nothing beats 16lb flouro in the rocks...unless you can get bit on 20. But I have snapped many a light wire jig with 20# on the set

I should say around jagged rock. Round rock braid is ok.

Dont use braid on the rocks, rock piles etc, use it in heavy weeded cover Tulies and that sort of cover. You will not have success with the rocks. I would use mono, and the line I use is maxima ultra green for the rocks but you do have to check your line about the first 5 feet up from your jig to make sure you dont have any nicks. check it every time before you cast. if you feel a nick retie if you dont keep up on the checks you will break off

i like fishing jigs directly tied to braid. i use 65lb braid. I use this when i flip mats and work around heavey structure. Also the water is stained a bit. If the water is gin clear, and or I am fishing rocks, i will tie a fluro or mono leader with a uni to uni knot like greg said. briad will help with sensativity and power, while the fluro will give you the abrasion against the rocks, and the less visibilty to the fish.

I agree braid with a leader in the rocks allows you to feel around better. Only draw back is you have to sometimes retie two knots instead of one if you run out of leader.
