What pound and brand of line do you guys use for your jigging/rigging rods? Thanks!

Some will hate me for this, but I've had great luck with Berkley Vanish Transitions. Get the gold. Its been great.

I also spent last season using Berkley's 100% fluorocarbon. I've got it on the 2 rods I use for fishing eye's and crappies as well as fishing stream trout lakes near Grand Marais. My issue is it seems to tangle and get difficult in cold weather. I've been using it all winter on Pool 4 with issues.

I have tried most lines. I keep going back to 6 or 8 pound Berkley Sensation. I seem to be in the minority because I don't like braid line for jigging.

I like Gamma and triple fish in 6lb. I only use braid on my casting rods and for that you can not beat power pro or tuff line. in like the 15 lb rest.

Gamma copoly in 8 lb for most of my jigging and shallow rigging. A superline like power pro or stren superbraid for deep jigging, rivers and deep rigging - usually something like 10 or 20 lb test which is in the 2-6 lb diameter range.

I only use the superlines for rigging and jigging if I have to for sensitivity, I'd rather use the Gamma. I like the feel better with the Gamma and hook more fish that way.

    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
    • That's rough DrJ, were you on public or private land?   
    • They're finally playing someone outside of the central division tonight, so we'll see what happens. Did Sano get suspended for throwing a punch yesterday?
