Would you go with a 6.3:1 gear ratio or a 8.1:1 gear ratio for worm and jig fishing?

This really depends on how you fish a jig.  I use 6.3-7.1's.  I personnaly like the fast retrieves.  I fish a jig with the rod and only use the reel to pick up slack or catch up to a running fish.

I agree, I like the faster reels to catch up.

I am the same way.I use a couple Daiwa Vientos in 6:3:1 if I am wanting a little different action because the twitching bar gives it a nice little hop. I also use a Zillion SHA 7:1, Aggrest 7.3:1 and recently picked up a T3 in 8.1:1. All for Jigs or flipping and pitching set ups. I like to pick up slack fast.

Also don't rely entirely on ratio as it varies company to company. The ipt is the important factor. That said I have an 8:1:1 tatula and it'll be used for pitching jigs and also frogs. It's always easier to slow down then to speed up imo.
