how do you mark your braid for depth control while jigging ? the braid
on my new reels is white , Could I just mark with a black sharpie every
50 ft ? could this damage the line in any way ?
Thanks

MO1,

Yes, you can mark your braided line. I marked few of my JB spectra for deep drop and I have not seen any demage to my marked JB. JMO others might have different opinion.

Sharpie won't cause any problems on spectra. It works well for marking depth as well as a help when splicing and building topshots.

I am thinking red and black , alternating every 50 feet. coloring a six inch
section at 50 ft red, 1 ft black at 100 , 11/2 ft red at 150 , 2 ft black at 200
etc.
