What are your thoughts and experiences with using the bright, highly visible monofilament fishing lines? Until recently, I would never use a hi visible, fluorescent monofilament fishing line because I thought that it would scare off the fish, even though the companies that manufacture these lines claim that the brightness caused by the ultraviolet light rays from the sun will disappear once the line is underwater a few feet. I recently bought some very lightweight fluorescent line to try on one of my ultralight panfish rods. Since my vision is not as good as it used to be, I thought using a hi-vis line would help me with tying on jigs and hooks and also be easier to see the line as it goes into the water while fishing. After using this line at Lake Perris while crappie fishing recently, I found that the fish did not shy away from the bright line. Maybe crappie are just a dumb fish, so I tried it at a private lake in Lake Forest and those Bluegill and small bass hit my lures tied directly to that line just fine. In fact, I caught more fish than my buddy did and he was using green Maxima!
