Good low-stretch jigging line?

10 posts in this topic

Whats a good jigging line?
I have not found good jigging line for walleye fishing yet. I am looking for something with very very little stretch and good feel, in a green or high vis color, and about 8-12lb.
I will be using it for verticle jigging and casting jigs.
I dont really feel like spendiong alot of money on finding the right one so I was wondering what you guys thought.

I have always used Fireline for my jigging rods! but, I just recently spooled one of my rods with PowerPro and have been pleasantly surprised! It comes in a HiVis Green and it seems to handle rocks better than the fireline! Just my 2 cents!

IronSilk has 20% lower stretch then any mono on the market and 40% higher abrasion resistance, yet very manageable.

It comes in a very good hi-vis color too that is darn handy for jigging.

Well worth a look.

Hey Ed, what's the price on that stuff. How would it be for ice fishing?

Ripper,

It's just under $10 per spool. Sounds like Ed and others are not sure yet what it'll do during the cold-weather season. I think I'll be trying it then too.

How many yards and who sells it? I haven't seen it yet but would like to give it a try.

Thanks

I use fireline for bottom bouncing and trolling.
Does Powerpro fray as bad as fireline can?
I was thinking about spooling up with fireline but wanted mono b/c the green color will last longer on it.

It is a Berkley product and most of the bigger stores are getting it in now. Fleet Farm had it in a wide selection if they are near you?

It runs about $8.50 +/- for a 400 yard spool of 8 to 12.

You will be amazed at how slick it is and how well it ties up. I like the stuff but like Scoot said I have not used it in cold weather yet. The rep said it will stay limp in cold weather so I am spooling up for late fall with it.

Power Pro is a uncoated superbraid and it frays very little. It will not take on water as bad as a frayed FireLine will in the cold and cause guide freeze up propblems.

I use both and find that the Power Pro is more cold weather friendly then FireLine.

FireLine may be a bit more trolling frendly, it is a close call there.
