I have a few jigs I'm going to be fishing with for walleye. Should I put on 4# test or 6# test line? Thanks

I think either would be fine.. if fishing a lake where larger fish are possible, IE LOW Mille Lacs, I might go with 6 lb. .if your regular run of the mill walleye lake, I think with a good rod and a decent reel, you should be fine with 4 as well..

Tough question - I split the diff and have 5 lb on my main walleye rod, I think it is Gamma. Darker water I wouldn't be worried about 6 lb line, clearer water 4 lb might be a better choice. One thing to keep in mind is that small lures will have better action on lighter line.

It also depends on your equipment. When I first started ice fishin with my rather cheap equipment. I had to pretty much use mostly 8# test. As 6# would break on occasion on me, and 4# would break on just about every other fish. Through the years as I got better equipment, I found that I can downsize and still be in control of the tug of war. I've pretty much dedicated 6# test for walleye's, that works a lot more on my confidence, although 4# may work.
