If the water is a little stained nothing beter than 6/2 flame green fireline

I use power pro and fireline... I think the power pro is the better line... Fireline is a brighter color out of the box, but will fade once you use it a bit... so that doesn't seem to be an issue. I use flame green for both, fish don't seem to mind and it is easier to detect strikes..

Both beat the heck out of mono.. the no-stretch properties of these superlines makes them much more sensitive then mono...

yar 32 nailed it flame green fireline for me. I do like the 8 lb a little better just a little more confidence plus with the small diameter it really doesn't matter.

why do you guys say flame green? I use the smoke fire line and love it. give the low down on why you feel the green is better.

Brother-in-law fishes MN. walleye trail does excellent and i know for a fact that you won't catch him fishing anything besides spiderwire braid the twenty doller a spool stuff. His #1 go to is open water jiggin, i haven't switched just because i love to cast alot with my stradic also and that spider wire takes a dump if you cast it as much as i do. good luck

I just like green because it is easier for me to see when I am tying with it. I have always used high vis stuff I used to use trilene solar which also was a bright green. I have a friend that uses the smoke color and he likes it but I find it harder to see which might be a good think in the water since the fish wouldn't be able to see it but I don't really think that it matters that much.

10 lb spiderwire with yo-zuri hybrid leader.

I also agree with Icehawk- Sensation is a solid line for jigging.

I haven't used it yet, but I think the spiderline super mono XXX looks like it has potential.

I like the super lines for verticle jigging.Superior sensitivity and instant hooksets when needed ,and gets you down deep and quickly.You just can't go wrong.I have a rod set up just for jigging so I don't worry about casting.I have another rod set up for pitching jigs.I had the fortune of running into a 10,000 yrd spool of Fenwick Iron Thread in 8lb that is no longer made and thats what I have been using but when I run out(if ever!)I will probably go with spider wire.

6lb dia power pro w/ 6 lb. p-line leader. Snags snap off, and the p-line is also strong & low-stretch.
