Hey guys (and girls) this might sound stupid but I am going to leech lake in a few weeks for some walleye and was wondering what the best line is for jigging in 10-15 ft of water with a spinning reel?

Although I use co-polymer line in 4 lb. test for jigging (Gamma), I think you would be O.K. using a monofilament such as Trilene or Stren in the 6-8 lb. range for the jigging purposes you stated.

I have tried various lines over the years but haven't found anything better than PowerPro. I'd suggest putting 8lb Power pro braid on your spinning reel with a 2-3 ft leader of flourocarbon. You can either tie the two lines together with a uni-knot or simply use a good ball bearing swivel. The advantage of the swivel is it will eliminate those annoying loops that eventually form over your rod tip from jigging.

I'll soon have some instructional videos on my website that will show you how to tie knots, read depthfinders...etc. The site is www.jasonsfishinaddiction.com.

IMO, yes, it's more durable and has less stretch than mono. Another option is flourocarbon line. Both copoly and f-carbon would be better choices than mono, but for most purposes without breaking the bank, mono would be just fine. I, and I'm sure others on here, have caught more than their share of fish on mono, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. If you go with a Trilene, make sure you use an XL, not an XT. The XL will be more limp and more easily castable than the XT, which IMO is more suited for tying spinners, or fishing VERY rocky cover. Just my 2 cents, hope it helps. Feel free to ask if you need any more info and good luck fishing Leech, should be another stellar year there!!

6lb Trilene XL it is. Thank you both for your responses!
