braided line for finesse fishing

Recommended Posts

just wondering if you suggest this or not. i know a guy who uses braided line on his spinning reels and i was wondering if you guys have ever used this for finesse fishing. i was planning on trying it for shakey heads and small baits thanks.

On my UL rod I wouldn't use anything else, 2/6 Suffix braid .005 thick.

There is a learning curve when switching to braid but with the quality of some of the braided lines out there today I would hate to do without it. Have used the super braids with and without long time and I find no difference in fish catching, so I have not used a leader at all for a while, plus as with any line it is one less knot.

I have switched everything over to braid.  However, when I fish "gin" clear water, I use a 15-20 foot flourocarbon leader, whether it is finesse fishing or not.

The only reel I have mono on is my spinnerbait reel.

Braid is great for finesse.  I go back and forth on the leader necessity.  Currently, not using a leader.

WE need to perform a test on leaders no leaders, a lot of experienced angles i've talked to used no leader on high vis braid and have caught countless fish, then there are the 'others'.

I use a fluro leader for finesse. Just connect it with uni knots and make sure you wet them good before cinching down. Dry fluro burns real easy and will break.

I use braid on every rod I own (except fly rods of course  ;D ) and my crankbait rig. I think some stretch there is a good thing.

just put a braid on one of my baitcasters, used it for a little bit of everything (well everything but top water) from jigs to worms to crank baits (lipped and lip less). I absolutley love it, you can really feel EVERY piece of anything you touch. I replaced my fluorocarbon with the braid on my spool and will not be buying fluoro anytime soon. The hook set and sensitivity on the braid is unbeatable in my opinion.

I usually do not use braid for finesse, but I also know there are times when it can be beneficial and will use it. When I do, I prefer razor thin Fireline and no leader.

and yes, I know Fireline is a fused "superline" and not a braid per se.  Cuts through weeds best of all I've tried though.
