When shooting with film to transfer to digital (in normal daylight) would it be recommended to shoot with a fine grain film? On my scans, I'm still showing a little too much emulsion for my taste. I'm currently using Kodak Professional 400 speed.

I find it difficult to believe you ask this question. You know that lower speed film has a finer grain by your own admission, and that it produces images with less visible grain. Yet you ask if shooting a finer grain film will produce a less grainy scan?

Did I miss something?

I guess my question would be, is switching to a finer grain film worth it? Are the results after scan actually that much better?

Forgive me for asking the question, but I am rather new at the hobby.

Yes, it's worth it if you do not need the speed of 400.

The best philosophy is always to use the slowest film you need, in any photography. I am sure it could be done, but if you want to upload to this site, you are making it difficult to get your images accepted.
In the Texas sun I would try to use 100 ISO film most of the time and 200 when necessary

If you are shooting on slide and the sky is clear, stick to ISO 100 film , such as Fuji Provia or Astia. By and large, the results I have seen from ISO 200 slide films are terrible.

Regards,

Tim.



Obviously missing something....

A question he himself already knows the answer to.
