How to Remove Twist in Fishing Line
There are three ways to do this:
1. Cut lure off, feed out about 30′ of line into the water and pull for a few seconds.
2. Cut off lure and feed out line while running the boat at about 20-30 mph for a few seconds.
3. Remove body and bait from jig and hold it up to un-spin, cast out a couple times and repeat
I use monofilament line because it is less damaging to the rod, less expensive, and less trouble over all. Although braided and carbofilament line is good because it doesn’t break easily, it can cut fingers and damage metal shafts. It is also less sportsman like, you don’t need to use drag or much skill in fighting a fish.
I use monofilament because the larger diameter line washes behind the boat and this is great for fishing wingdams so I don’t have to get too close to the fish and the faster current on top of the wingdams. When the fish are deeper in the cold months I use lighter line.
