View Full Version : Hi Vis braid for rockfish

06-09-2013, 07:55 PM
Anyone use High Visibility braid for rockfishing? I'm getting ready to respool with PowerPro Super 8 Slick braid and I'm trying to decide which color to use. The Hi Vis is really easy to see and it makes keeping track of the line much easier. However I'm not sure if the fish are spooked by it. I don't think rockfish are line shy because most shrimp fly rigs are tied with heavy mono.
With the bright color braid, I'm not sure. Any thoughts?

No problems. Ive always used hi vis for rock fish and done just as well as anyone im fishing with using something else. Rock fish arent very line shy at all.
