Again, what kind of jigging? I've used 1# FC leaders for steelhead jigs, all the way up to 80# braid or 25# FC for heavy cover ;). In general, i'd say 12-15# mono/copoly or 50# braid for weedless jig n' pig type stuff. For finesse stuff, you can go lighter.

But have you hooked them?  What do you think the problem is?  Maybe we can change that statistic for you :).  A Great Lakes 6lb. LMB on a jig:

I believe the problem is, I'm not sure it's a hit or not, I know of two hits this summer for sure. Now soon as I feel the slightest bump I set the hook. I can go over the same area I just jig fish with a T/R worm and get um in the boat. I'm not giving up.

Count the bait down to the bottom to get a baseline for that bait and trailer.  Then pitch to a hole.  If the bait stops before the end of the count, swing immediately.  Do not wait to see if there is a fish there, since all you might feel is the fish spitting the bait.  If it gets to the bottom, pop it a few times, or shake it.  Anything feels just slightly different, swing.  The bites are frequently subtle, and that is an understatement.

Many times I've been flipping in weedbeds, and I've seen the strikes.  Visually they are quite violent, yet on the tactile side almost not detectable.  Its because they grab the bait on the slack line fall.

That Sufix braid is green and hard to see, what do you think about the Hi Vis braided lines?

Thanks

20 lb vanish transition is my favorite. I started throwing jigs with braid, then switched to mono and started catching fish. More of a confidence thing for me :)

someone got me started on white braids and i  love it.  The biggest reason why i use it is because i can see the line.  I can see each tick that i might otherwise miss with other lines.
