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.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
