Will using the same setup as a frog rod work? Say 65 pound braid?

The only time I use braid on a jig is at Camelot Bell where the bass are big and mean. Otherwise, I use 15-25# Seguar fluoro.

just 15-20lb vicious fluoro. I don't like braid for any bottom fishing techniques, frays up too easily

15-20lb invizx. If using 65lb braid I would match with an equal diameter flouro which would be 15lb.

Copolyomer #20 lb low stretch which gives you a great hook up. P-Line CXX Moss green hard to beat over all.Low stretch counts when you have to get big hooks into big bass with all that bone in their mouth.
