04 August 2015 - 04:30 PMActually I was commenting on the line thru the sinker to the hook. The line itself I use braid but I use a reel and short 2' pole. If I were to use it by hand 30lb mono or dacron. Braid is thinner and could easily cut your hand
what is it about the dacron that more effective exactly? i understand that jugging is a hand help technique, but i was thinking of using a very short stiff rod for it. is the dacron easier on the hands or would it still be beter to put on the reel? thanks for the reply by the way walleye mike, much appreciated

04 August 2015 - 06:50 AMCO said 3". Most of mine are real close to 3"Chugging sinker. Yes its legal. However the hook must be 3" from the weight.this CAM00143.jpg
Those have been used out in the river for ages.
On the jigging sinker, the line the hook hangs from does not need to be 3" long. The 3" minimum limitation is for a hook that has the weight suspended BELOW the hook ( drop shot), The only restriction on the jigging sinker is that the hook may not be rigidly connected to the weight. ( soldered onto or molded directly into the sinker). The photo posted is a typical jigging rig. Works good (sometimes) in the SCR or channels.
I would think with a little more length it would be easier for the fish to grab the bait with the sinker not getting in the way.
