Do what makes you happy. Fish with whatever makes you happy.

Try both ways.

Use a Leader or Dont use a Leader:

It doesn't matter until it does.

Color of bait doesn't matter until it does.

Netting or Slinging a fish in the boat doesn't matter until it does.

I personally use a leader.

That's my personal preference. It makes me happy.

Good Luck finding and using what makes you happy.

What he said.^^^

Definition of "clear water" might be useful. Few lakes are what I define as clear. Canyon, Stillhouse, Belton, PK come to mid. There are times on Belton when you can see an 1/8 oz chart head and a white/chart rocky top jig body 12-13 ft deep. You can also see a 1 gal white jug at 16-17 ft deep. When fishing this type clear water, you need every advantage you can get. fish
