Re: Was Braided Line a Game Changer for You?

I use white braid a lot. I just color the last 5-6' of the line with a black sharpie and it hasnt affected my catch rate with bottom contact baits. Interesting. I'll try that. Thanks. I kinda like the white braid, because it is definitely easier to see. But, I just didn't get as many bites with slo...

I fish the CA Delta, and the water always has some color and current, so it helps me.
