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.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
