The Best Fishing Lines for Texas Rigs | Bass Fishing

January 14, 2020


Hey, folks, Glenn May here with BassResource.com. And today, I want to talk to you about choosing
line for Texas rigs. Now, there’s a whole variety of applications
you can use Texas rigs for. So, for me, it breaks down to basically four
different types and that is: finesse fishing, your regular Texas rig fishing which most
people are associated with throwing out in kind of sparse cover and docks and just Texas
rigging different plastics to avoid them from getting hung up, there’s the flipping and
pitching setup for heavy cover, and there’s the punching setup, which is heavy-duty stuff. So, let me go through the different lines
that I chose for those different setups starting with finesse. So, for this finesse setup, you know, Texas
rigs for baits such as like this, kudos for anybody who knows what that bait is, but that’s
nice in Texas rig. What that does is, for real finesse type,
this is split-shot rig that I’m using. That’s the weight I used on it. This is for the real slow bite, real soft
and subtle. The fish have a lot of time to examine this
bait and to look at it and, of course, to examine your line too. And typically, I’m fishing this in clear water. It’s open, there’s not a whole lot of cover
involved, you’re not gonna get snagged up in a lot of stuff, maybe it’s a little rocky. So, for those type of situations, I’m using
the light line. This is a light wire hook. It’s only a 1/0 hook, thin wire, so you can
overpower it if you’re using braid. These thin wire hooks aren’t gonna… Well, let’s put it this way. You need your system to match. If it’s a thin wire hook and you’ve got a
lot of strong lines, strong rod, you’ve got drag set down, then that weakest link is your
hook and you’re gonna bend it. And this is true for all these different set
ups I’m gonna tell you. It’s really dependent upon that hook that
you’re using. You wanna make sure that you don’t bend that
hook out. So, in this case, since it’s a real thin wire
hook, light situation, I’m looking at 6 pound, maybe up to 10 pound, but 6-pound line is
what I’d like to use, either fluorocarbon, I like Seaguar Finesse fluorocarbon line,
or I’ll use copolymer line. And the real difference is, if I’m using fluorocarbon,
if I’m really looking for that real subtle bite, I’m trying to keep the bait up off the
bottom, say for example, in a drop shot situation, that sort of thing. I’m using fluorocarbon for that real sensitive
bite. If the fish are hitting it right on the fall,
right away, then I don’t need that sensitive of a line so I may use copolymer in that instance. But, that’s typically what I’m using, 6 to
8-pound fluorocarbon or copolymer line. You can use mono as well, if you want. Mono’s got nice stretch qualities to it, which
works when you’re fighting a fish back in this situation. So that’s finesse. So, the other one, and the next one, is Texas
rig, your standard Texas rig. Which what I mean by standard? As you’re looking at your 7-foot, medium heavy
power rod with a fast action tip. This is your, you know, typical Swiss army
knife of bass fishing. If you don’t have a medium-heavy, 7-foot rod,
you need to get one because you can throw all kinds of baits with it. And in this case, we’re talking Texas rig. So, with this, you can throw it in a variety
of situations and what I prefer to do here is throw this in sparse cover, you know, scattered
cover, scattered weeds, lily pads, patches of milfoil, patches of hydrilla, throw it
around docks, logs, scattered bushes that are flooded, variety of things. It’s somewhat open but, you know, the fish
are hiding in the cover and I’m gonna be throwing to that. So, for that, I’d like to use 30-pound braid,
typically. Sometimes, I’d like to use Seaguar braid,
that’s one of my preferred ones. And this one, what I’m doing here today, is
I’ve been fishing this Berkley Creature Hawg, this is the MaxScent Creature Hawg, which
I really like. And I’ve been throwing it in open water, like
you see behind me. I’ve been fan casting it. So, I want greater distance. So, in that case, I’m using FireLine Ultra
8, FireLine 30-pound test because it casts really far. And I’m just, you know, throwing it to 1:00
to 2:00, 3:00, I’m just fan casting, covering water. These fish are out on flats, out in scattered
bushes, out in deeper water. So just covering it that way is a great way
to throw it. This Berkley FireLine works really well if
you throw them around docks. I’m throwing around open weeds, that sort
of thing. If I’m throwing around a whole lot of rocks,
if it’s just or mostly rocks, then I kinda shy away from the braided lines. I tend to use more fluorocarbon in that instance. Braid tends to get scuffed up more, believe
it or not, in rocks. As abrasion resistant as they are, they tend
to get all scuffed up in rocks. So, I like to use fluorocarbon or copolymer,
or maybe even mono line in those situations. About 30-pound test is about all I need in
those situations. So, moving on up, now we’re gonna go in the
flipping and pitching set up. And for those… I’ll get that in there. For those, I like to get a little bit more
heavy duty. In that case, I’m using a heavy power rod
with a fast tip. I’m using it here, 7’4″ to 7’6″ rod. But for the line, now I’m using Seaguar Smackdown
Braid, it’s a 50-pound test, that’s what I’ll go for. And for these situations, now I’m throwing
it in flooded brush, flooded timber. I’m throwing it in heavy cover where the fish,
you gotta dig ’em out, dig ’em out of those thicker weeds, that sort of thing. You’ve got to have the power of the rod, you’ve
got to have the power of the braid, and of course, now with the hook, instead of using
that 1/0 thin wire hook like I was using in finesse and with the previous setup, I might
be using a 2/0 to 3/0 standard sized hook. Here I’m using a 3/0 Superline hook is what
they call them or a flipping hook. It’s a thick wire hook. Again, you want that hook to stand up for
the power that you’re throwing. So, you need to have a hook that can stand
up to it. This rod doesn’t flex much. You can see it just flexes right towards the
end, and that’s it. It’s a pretty stiff rod because you’re gonna
be throwing on this heavy stuff. So that’s what I use for standard flipping
and pitching, 50-pound braid. It works great for these situations. Now, the fourth kind, which I don’t have hooked
up today because I’m not throwing in it. But that’s for fishing punching. Now, punching is a little bit different. Punching your fishing in those big vast mats
of weed. It’s either hydrilla or milfoil that’s topped
over, and it’s just a big mat. You got to get that lowered down through that
thick mat of weeds and there’s big fish underneath it. You’ve got to haul them out typically with
several pounds of weeds wrapped around them. It’s a heavy load. You need some stiff hard equipment for that. So, with that, I’m using a heavy, heavy action
or heavy, heavy power rod, usually a 7’11”, something that stout. I’m using again a 3/0 to 4/0 stout flipping
hook. And for that, for the braid, no less than
65-pound braid is what I’m using. The Seaguar Smackdown works really well for
that. A lot of guys like to go for 80, 85-pound
braid. I think that’s a little stiff for me, but
that’s all right. You know, it’s your personal preference, what
you feel most comfortable with. The idea here is you’re putting about a 3/4
to an 1 1/2oz bullet weight in the front, and you’re throwing a bait that’s just like
this. It’s streamlined. So, it will go through those weeds and it’s
kind of a bullet shape, if you can see that, which is perfect for going through those weeds
and the fish are underneath it. You hook on to them that 65-poung braid. That’s what you’re gonna need to haul those
fish out. So, those are the different setups I use,
those are the different kind of lines I use. There’s no absolute in fishing. There’s no right or wrong. So, if you don’t fish it that way, you have
a different way of doing it, and it works great for you, do it. It’s all about confidence. But those are what I use. If you’re trying to figure out, like, you
start now and you’re not sure which way to go, that’s the way I do it. Watch some other YouTube videos if you want
to get an idea of what you wanna start with. But that kinda gives you a starting point
to figure out the different types of lines to use for the different kinds of cover and
set up that you’re fishing. Hope that helps. For more tips and tricks like these, visit

    Great tips!! My go to line for casting gear is usually 14# mono or Co-poly. Extreme situations I'll go heavier line. I don't care for braid or fluoro on casting gear, cuz if you backlash it screws up the line, I can't afford new braid or fluoro every time you trash your line & that could be once a trip out fishin. For spinning gear, I use 10-15# braid main line & 8# fluoro leader, also 8-10# mono or co-poly all main line, depending on the situation…

    Texas rigging has come a long way in the last 50 years. I started fishing Lake Sam Rayburn in east Texas in the mid-1960s. The line choices we had were mono weight and color. The reel of choice for most fishermen at that time was the Ambassadeur 5000. Ball bearings in a reel were a dream for most of us. We used the heaviest premium line readily available – 20# mono on a 5'6" casting rod. Bait choice was primarily a plastic worm in 6-8". We used this rig in 2' to 40' depths. Choosing a rod, reel & line was much easier back then & more of us middle class fisherman raising families could fish with our buddies with funds left over for teaching our youngsters to fish. Both of my daughters were Texas rig fishing by the time they started school (using a spin-cast reel). It saddens me greatly today to see these very expensive Bass Rigs with one or two men in them. You guys who are spending an exorbitant amount of money for YOUR toys & leaving your wife and kid sat home are missing one of the greatest blessings Go has for you.

    Thanks for the info. All information is helpful no matter how and were you fish. You can take various bits of the information you offer and incorporate them both to fit any situation, you just need to be open minded an think out of the box a little.

    Yo Glen, thanks for all the info in all these videos. One question. You often mention MH casting rods, what line and lure weights do you recommend ? Dobyns, G Loomis heavy is 10-20lb line 1/4-1oz, St Croix med heavy 10-20lb and 3/8-1oz. It might be more helpful to us if you mention line and lure weights since there isn't a standard designation for rod powers. OR you can just let me know what you are referring to when you say MH.
