5lb 2oz. Working the jig parallel to the bank with a slow crawl and intermittent hops over rocks or any structure. She picked it up after a hop and took off. Nice change of pace from sight fishing and throw lipless cranks. Enjoy Yall!

      What are some good fishing spots in Katy? I'm going to be there all day tomorrow and I thought I might as well try some fishing @Jimmy_Lynch

      Or in the case of big fish, no having that power to keep me from heading to cover and not worrying about line break when I drop the hammer on a hookset!

      @thedevman1 yeah that sounds like a lot of fun... I grew up on 8lb mono and spinning reels fishing the coast and lakes for bass. I just prefer the power to winch ...more bass in and not worry about line break

      Inline spinners it works better.

      I actually prefer 30lb braid over anything but don't have a reel spooled up with it right now. I got 15lb mono, 12lb fluoro and 50lb braid on my rigs right now

      FYI back in the pacific NW when fishing for salmon and steelhead most guys use 8 lb test. Guided a friend once and that's what he caught his 53 lb salmon on. ...more Dragggg. Then again when you're throwing

      @thedevman1 yeah light line is fun but I get edgy with anything under 15lb. It's my safe number and I haven't seen the need for braid over 50lb strength ...more for my uses because I fish all over

      Well duh lol! I got the 65 lb power pro in an emergency because it was on sale. I like it ok but miss my seaguar smack down. As far as fluro I love light line. The ...more fight is awesome

      What it is! All kinds of different preferences and techniques

      @thedevman1 I've never had a problem with 50lb PowerPro. And yeah the 20lb is heavy but my reels are 200 series so they have A TON of line capacity. To each ...more their own though, it's what makes fishing

      I broke off too much on 50. I love my 65 for heavy cover. 20 lb fluro seems like a lot. I don't think my reel could handle it.

      @bassinboy01 did the skirts come off on your H2O jigs?

      What pound string do Yall use on your jigs? @bassinboy01 @AllWaterLife

      @AllWaterLife I used to like them, but had problems with their skirt keepers, and haven't tried them since they changed them. But might have to check them out ...more again. A 3lber is nothing to scoff at!!
    25. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      @AllWaterLife no sir. I stay away from academy and their H2O brand and don't support it. Just a personal thing to me. By your result it seems they work though
    26. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      @bassinboy01 yeah they a popular in general. There is a reason Strike King is as big of a company it is. They make good stuff
    27. AllWaterLife 0
      Have yall tried H20 express jigs? They're pretty decent. Caught my PB 3 lber with one
    28. Jacob Breaux 0
      I gotcha. Yea they're pretty popular among many Skouters, maself included 👍
    29. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      @bassinboy01 well the jig worked yesterday but it's not often I get "jiggy" with it. I have no experience with the Strike King jigs but with as much ...more as they are used I'd say they work pretty well :)

      That's a good base my boy. How do you like those jigs? I've been only throwing strike king for the past couple years
