When I was up in Sitka, the boat I was decking on used the 30# on the jigging rods. Your hands sure as Hell take a beating when the coho are thick and you are wrapping your hand around the line to gaff the fish. It is even worse when the fish then decides to take off.

Thank God we didnt jig much, when my freind decked, all they did was jig and his hand came back with about 100 cuts and tears and totally battered from that stuff.
