I use it on nearly everything. Except topwaters, and lighter worm setups. The lighter braid kniks easy when fished on the bottom causeing lots of breaks.



It is the stuff to use with open hooks like swiming a grub/jig or spinnerbait buzzbait!!! Talk about setting the hook. I also use it as my main line with the FnF.

Do you fish it with a leader when you use it with jigs, t-rigs, etc?

I use braid a lot but mostly with a leader. c-rig I use Spiderwire 12LB diameter 60LB test (also use this on the jig with 20 Flourocarbon), on spinning reels with SH I use PowerPro 20 LB and fireline 14LB with an 8 to 12 LB Flourocarbon leader. About the only time I will use braid with no leader is when fishing a frog or jig in matted grasss and sometimes when throwing a SB. You can feel the fish breath on you baits when using braid it is very telegraphing of everything in the water.

Rocks will cut braid pretty easy that is why most folks use a leader. Leaders also keep the braid away from the bait making it appear more natural.



Tip.....Open water crankbaits if you want to get your deep diving CB down really deep throw it on a 10 or 12 LB braid.

I use mine for all fishing, except for ice fishing (Not that you need to worry about ice) and for fishing for perch/crappie/blue gill. If i am fishing for bass I will not use a leader. But if im fishing for walleye, muskie, pike, or if I know they are in teh area i will use a leader.



Hope this helps,

Corey
