Line recommendations please

Recommended Posts

Truth be told, my universal set ups have been 10 lb Braid with various FC leaders and I have been happy.

Next Spring I am going to a  dedicated jig ( seldom over 20ft on a MHF) and dedicated 3-10 crankbait set up (MMF).  Also just picked up 2 shamano CI4's.

What line recommendations do you have for the jigs and crankbait?

Thanks in advance,

Al

Are these casting or spinning combos? What size jigs are you fishing and what kind of cover/structure?

Casting rods and seldom throwing anything over 3/4.....mostly 3/8 and 1/2

Very clear water, mostly open water, never weeds

I use 10lb Big Game for my 3 main cranking rods. 

For jigs in those conditions, I use 15lb Pline C21.

I mostly use 8# mono and co-polymer on that power crankbait rods.  It has been 8# AN40 for any reels spooled the past couple years since I have a 3000 yd. spool of it.  I'm sure most will suggest fluorocarbon or braid or braid/leader for jigs.  I don't fish jigs often (I realize I should fish them more) so I don't have a dedicated setup....yet.  Thinking to use my Techna AV 7' MF and a 12# fluorocarbon for my dedicated jig rod since I normally use 3/8 or 1/2 oz. jigs.  Probably a fluorocarbon from Sunline.  I don't fish where a heavier line would be of benefit against abrasion otherwise I'd up that to 15#.
