john has a great show...
Personally? I don't care for braid with flouro leader for walleyes. Straight mono for me. 6 pound Berkley XT. In green if you can get it. Always done well with that.
I've tried the braid with mono thing and for light jigging, like I do up in Vilas, I've found that mono works better....for me. Now, if I'm going somewhere where the walleyes are bigger and the techniques are not finesse? Then I prefer the braid with flouro.
My advice would be to try both and see what you like best and see what the fish like best.
"Watching the show it looks like John uses braided line with a flurocarbon leader"
I don't know about JG, but I sure do. Its the best as you have the clear leader line that the fish cant see as well and you can detect those light bites as the braid doesn't stretch.
Hey all. I just started getting into this show this year and I want to try some walleye fishing. I've caught them here & there, but never intentionally went out for them specific. I am interested in getting a rod/reel setup for this, any suggestions? Watching the show it looks like John uses braided line with a flurocarbon leader, is that correct? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
I don't turn something off if it bugs me when I'm watching something because I usually like the show. I love John's show most of the time.I love where John fishes. I love most of the guides he fishes with and have hired a couple of them to fish with and have learned a lot from them. But as a "discussion" thread here I felt like expressing an opinion about John and others on the show holding up the fish to the camera for way too long while they sit there and talk about their guide service, what they're using, or whatever. I see no reason to show a fish to the camera for that long. Get the fish back in the water if you're releasing them.
