Fished Lake Granger today for about 5 hours and also refreshed a few piles.
I decided to do a little test today with 40 pound test braid and DAN'S JIGS!
Have always been told that you need to fish light line to get the most bites and not spook the fish.
I usually fish 8 pound mono and have not had any issues other than breaking off when I get hung up bad.
The main reason I don't fish braid is that it tangles so easy on your rod tip.
A lot of people fish braid 2-20 lb,range.
I used 40 pound and it still had a few issues with tangles, but not too bad...
Question was, could I catch fish with this heavy of line.
Caught over 100 fish and kept 25.
Now the question.... was it DAN'S JIGS?.
Whatever it was, the fish did not seem to mind the 40 pound braid.
I would STRONGLY suggest that you buy this JIG!
CHROME HEAD, GOLD GLITTER CHENILLE BODY, PURPLE TAIL
1/32 OZ. WITH #4 HOOK!!!!
This is always my go to jig and Danny has made improvements to this jig with a little different chenille.
There has not been a lake that I have fished that this jig has not done well on, and I have fished a lot of lakes!
If Danny doesn't post pic of this jig, I will soon.
I'm always in a good mood when I'm fishing.
