Best line for soft plastics and jigs?

Recommended Posts

Fishing soft plastics I use a PLINE CX 12# (in clear to mostly clear water) weighted or weightless. Though my favorite is wacky unweighted or weighted T-Rig. For jigs or plastics in moderate to heavy slop I like Berkley fireline braid in 50 - 65#.

I use seaguar abrazx 12-25 lb. test depending on the cover Im fishing. It has a very thin diameter, their 12 lb. has the same diameter as most 8 lb. lines.

For soft plastics I really like Yo-Zuri Hybrid in 12lbs test and for jigs in very little vegetation I like BPS fluorocarbon in 14lbs test and in heavy cover I like the Fireline Braid in 50lbs test.

Later, :)

Spinning tackle: Yo-Zuri Hybrid or Hybrid Ultra Soft #6 (.010" diameter, 11.9 lb breaking strength).

Baitcasting gear: Hybrid or Ultra Soft #12 (.013" diameter, 19.5 lb breaking strength).

Hey roadwarrior do you have that saved somewhere so you can just copy and paste it :) For plastics I use 12 lb fluoro and for jigs its either 20 lb fluoro or 50 lb braid.

Yes, but I always have a rig or two spooled up with something different

to try. I'm currently experimenting with braid on my main jig rod and

deep crankbait rig. I have recently used both Vicious and P-Line CX

Premium. So, I'm not a total stick-in-the-mud, but I haven't found a

line I prefer to Hybrid.

Ok i gotcha. Please let us know how the braid experiment on your deep crankin rig goes. Now that I think about it, braid would be good for deep cranks

I crank soft plastics back to the boat with 12lb Trilene XL.

With jigs in heavy cover I use PowerPro 30lb. I have a seperate rod and reel setup with braid for any bottom fishing.

Soft plastic---30# braid or 14#-20# fluorocarbon

Jigs-----------50# braid

Well now, seems ridiculous to me, but different strokes for different folks.

Plastics - 10# or 12# Trilene 100% or P-Line Halo Fluorocarbon

Jigs - 50# Sufix Performance or Fireline Tracer Braid with or without 15# fluorocarbon leader (leader brand doesn't really matter to me, but I've been using Vicious Fluorocarbon)

Plastics 12lb seaguar red. Jigs I would go with fifty pound power pro, or any spectra braid. 50# fireline is about 10# mono equivalent.
