Line Reco For Jig/worm Rod

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, put together a dedicated jig/word rod for next season. Its a mhf veritas paired up with a curado 200e7. Will be using this outfit for the following applications:

Jigs (mostly football heads and boo jigs)

Light Duty pitching

Carolina Rigs

Texas rigs 1/4 ounce and up

I have heard some say 50 lb braid is the way to go, but I am leaning towards 12# or 15# YZH. Would love to hear what everybody thinks. Thanks in advance.

Phil

I can't find the question.

EDIT: Yes, that will work fine.

If you are going to be in wood cover while pitching then 15-20 lb fluoro would be fine. If you get into grass and weeds, go to braid.

I personaly only use 50lb braid on my flipping stick, and frog rod. For a more multi purpose rod like what you seem to be wanting to do, I use 30lb braid. When I use fluoro, it would be as a leader and it is usually 17lb

Thanks for the replies. I do have a flipping setup with 65 lb braid already for the nasty stuff. I guess the question is more about should I go with braid for the sensitivity factor? Do you guys throw braid/mono or fluoro for your texas rigs, worms and jigs?

With Jigs, (Tight line, all the time) I want braid.

With everyother bottom contact technique where the line is almost always semi-slack, give me fluoro carbon.

Personally I use fluoro or Hybrid for most of my worms and jigs now. I'll use braid when I get into really thick grass. I was a braid only person for a long time. One thing I eventually learned about braid over time is that when you have some slack in the line, you tend to lose most of the sensitivity. It's fantastic if you can keep a tight line all the time. With wind, that can start to get troublesome.

Yeah the yozuri will be fine for what you're wanting to do I with it. 15# yozuri is my general line for such things.

That being said....my jig/worm rod has 15# berkley flouro on it right now.......

I only use braid for grass mats. (Frogs, flipping).
