What kind of line to do you normally T-rig?

Recommended Posts

Talking about on a baitcaster here. I am not talking about punching or flipping a jig or something. Say on a 7' Med Fast rod and a reel with say 30 IPT. I am talking about T-rigging a worm, hula grub, a rage bug, possibly something with a little more movement like a fluke. You using mono, fluoro or braid? What pound strength? Is there a prevailing thought here or is it all just personal preference?

Light to moderate cover I shoot with my Trion loaded with 12# FC

Heavier cover it's the President with 20# Braid...no leader

30 lb braid to a 12-16 lb fluorocarbon leader dependent upon the type of cover.

My worm rod has 17lb clear blue fluorescent Trilene xl . Its .015 inches in diameter . When line watching I like the lines that glow from UV light then disappears under water .

12-17 pound fluoro, depending on what rod, bait and cover, another vote for Sniper.

This is how I do it too around anything besides grass and pads.  In the grass & pads I will just go with straight braid to eliminate additional snag points.

Last two seasons, plain old Trilene XL 12 lb mono.

 

This season I'm trying YZH 12 lb hybrid/copoly just to see how it works out.
