These days of hi-tec lines leave lots of choices. I have went thru a few of the new braids.... my humble opinion, power pro is the best choice in the musky/muskie line sizes. Have used spectron on occasion with no "malfunctions", have some cortland flylines, these work great. Once again power pro works for me, in these heavier line sizes it's the way to go....opinionated?....yes I am cause the ski'sons almost open up here and I have 35# on my bucktail rod. You can get ahold of www.cortlandline.com

Let the big dawgs go, enjoy and happiness

One great muskie line I have been using is 80 lb Berkley Whiplash. It is super strong, low stretch, low visibility and has the diameter of 17 lb mono. Most other braids of this strength have the diameter of anchor rope. Give it a try it's great line.
The 65 lb strength is great for bass also. It's awesome for slop fishing, it slices through any weeds.

Gorilla Braid from Berkley is some ultra tough stuff! I have never had any problems with it and have caught some nice fish with the stuff. Just my personal fav.

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
