    When fishing multiple rods as most of us do, sometimes a dozen or more out, an occasional tangle with occur among rods. Braid is easier to untangle then mono normally, but I have found a new twist that really helps make it even easier. I have found that by using various colors of braid instead of using one color exclusively, when tangles occur, they are much easily untangled. I am currently running yellow, red, and green, and when I do get that occasional tangle, it really is easier to get the line untangled.

    LOL! I fished four rods last night and had a red, a yellow, and two greens out. We were fishin' in Chris' small 14 foot jon boat. He caught an 18.5 pound blue. The fish pulled the boat in a 360 before we could make adjustments to rectify the spin. All four lines got tangled. We got the red and yellow out easily enough. The two greens resulted in me having to cut about 30 feet of braid off one green line. First time in over two years of using braid that I have ever had to cut one loose. I guess I could have brought the tangle home and gotten it loose, but it was indeed a clusterf***. Ironic that this happened the same day I posted this "tip". LOL! :roll_eyes:

    Yes sir, that's exactly what I do ; )

    To take it more more step, if this helps ya sometime, I use live baits on the green and cut bait on the red.

    Green is go
    red is dead

    I tend to forget what bait is on what line sometimes...not any more ; )

    Color can also help ya know what kind of baits are on what. Herring on green, bream on yellow...etc.

    Color codes are great to use.

    Definitely different colors are great for figuring out tangles. I've currently got reels spooled with..

    Yellow - Sufix
    Red - PowerPro
    Green - PowePro + Spiderwire Stealth
    Orange - Sufix (Neon Fire)
    Multicolor - Daiwa Boat Braid
    Yellow with black threads - Cabelas Ripcord SI+
    Blue - Momoi Diamond (Worst braid ever, lol)

    There are a few other colors out there too, like smoke gray and translucent.
