Water Clarity

5 posts in this topic

The Miss is very clear now. I didn't know that it got this clear.

What are your opinions on lines when the river gets this clear. Do you use braided lines or use a more invisible type?

I can see using a braided line for buzzbaits and surface lures, but I'm concerned about using it for other "underwater" lures. I just haven't used braided lines very much and don't know how visible it is underwater.

Thanks in advance!

HawgTide,
Use a fluorocarbon leader. P-line makes some leader material and so does Seagar. In the summer on my bass jigging rod I have Power Pro and it's very visible. I now have a 3 1/2' fluorocarbon leader it to up my confidence.

This is what I do when clarity is clear. Good luck,
EBass

I like the spiderline fusion.

I cast with mepps a lot and the fusion casts very nice and is very tough. I also fish quite a bit with a plain hook and minnow with a split shot. I work it just like a jig and minnow. Very deadly on eyes and smallies. Don't know if it's easier or harder for the fish to see. Hasn't mattered.

Why do you prefer the fusion over the braided? Is it more invisible in clear water?
