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
fish hard fish often find your own bite and tell no one
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.
