Shades of David Fritts@!   :o

 lo

but I get it.  you know it when you feel it.   ~rant

Same thing with a spinnerbait- you feel them take the water away from it. A huge deal when you're trying to figure out the bite...

It would drive many of us pure NUTS if we saw all the refusals, mouthings, etc. that happen to us on each and every outing.

Some of my favorite bedding baits include white and bubblegum tubes, white lizards, and all kinds of florescent floating worms. Nothin' natural to any of that.

What was the topic again?

see it?  probably.  that said, I use flouro for it's abrasion resistance and mono for some select topwater applications.

Same for me

It has more to do with line density than anything. Everyone knows that mono floats and fluoro sinks so techniques that require a deep presentation like jigs, crankbaits, swimbaits and jerkbaits fluoro will be the best line. What I don't like about braid and fluoro leaders is that the braid will create a bow with the slack that floats on the surface.

I've used a lot of lines, and I've settled on Yo-Zuri Hybrid for all my non-braid fishing. It is a good balance between the limpness/easy casting of mono and the abrasion resistance/low stretch of flouro. The only issue is that other than the first spool of it I found I have to order it online.

That's for sure. I pick colors for bed fish based on what I can see. I don't think the fish care at all.

What about the ones that don't think it's 'normal' but are territorial and prefer to eat alone........couldn't they strike something out of what we call 'anger' or instinctively just strike at anything they interpret as a threat?

I don't think a 'bedding' bass has ANY INCLINATION to 'eat' what comes near thier bed......BUT THEY DEFINITLY WILL STRIKE AT IT!

They certainly aren't hitting a BUZZBAIT because they think it appears like something they have eaten before......if so....what was it?


Could not agree more!!!!



To get to the original question... I've found myself going almost exclusively flouro.  The only rod in my rotation that doesn't have flouro are my topwater rod, and my punching / heavy jig rod, which both have heavy braid.  Regionally here we don't have the issue with it stiffening up, so I can't speak to that... but as far as sensitivity and it's ability to sink, it's just taken over as my preference for most applications.
