Red, line size is critical when it comes to small soft plastics and jigs for smallmouths. I can't tell you how many times I've wore my partners out because of a smaller diameter line than what they were using. Heavier line such as the 17lb. that you have been using kills the action on the smaller baits and smallmouths are pretty picky critters. I like the P-line brand because it is thin and incredibly strong. If you get hung up and grab your line to break the lure off it will cut you pretty deep and be sore for a few days. I recommend putting on a glove or towel over your hand to prevent that. P-line can be puchased locally at Dick's sporting goods. Or ordered from Bass Pro Shops. Good luck....5
