Swindle Talks Fall Jig Fishing with Sunline

Gerald Swindle doesn’t always reach for the heaviest line when he is spooling up his jig rod. As temperatures start to cool, Swindle likes to downsize his jig and line, offering the fish a more finesse presentation. Swindle prefers 12-pound Sunline Shooter for his fall and winter jig fishing, unless he is around super heavy cover. Give this a try this time of year, you might just like the results!

The highest quality materials and the most advanced technology have produced a line which gives the sensitivity, tenacity and ruggedness under extreme stress that top professionals demand. Available in three different categories by size; Finesse Special, Marionette Special and Power Special. Each category has unique properties to help the line provide maximum performance at that specific pound test. The specific characteristics of each category allow Shooter to perform with the most desirable qualities at each pound test.

More and more anglers are choosing a fluorocarbon leader to reduce visibility when targeting line shy fish. Maboroshi FC Leader is a 100% fluorocarbon leader material that features Sunline’s Vivid Dying Process, which significantly reduces the visibility of the leader material even further. The dying process adds five natural colors to the line helping it blend into rocks, wood or grass. The color changes approximately every 6” inches throughout the leader material. Moss green, green, gray, natural clear and reddish brown are utilized on the line to help it match any environment. By having colors that match the natural underwater environment it helps conceal the line from the wariest fish and increase bites for an angler. Fluorocarbon is less visible than other lines in the water, but it is not invisible, so by adding coloring to the leader it lowers the visibility to the fish.

LB Test: 5 LB, 6 LB, 7 LB, 8 LB, 10 LB, 12 LB, 14 LB, 16 LB and 20 LB
Spool Length: 50 YD
