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.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
