If the water is a little stained nothing beter than 6/2 flame green fireline

I use power pro and fireline... I think the power pro is the better line... Fireline is a brighter color out of the box, but will fade once you use it a bit... so that doesn't seem to be an issue. I use flame green for both, fish don't seem to mind and it is easier to detect strikes..

Both beat the heck out of mono.. the no-stretch properties of these superlines makes them much more sensitive then mono...

yar 32 nailed it flame green fireline for me. I do like the 8 lb a little better just a little more confidence plus with the small diameter it really doesn't matter.

why do you guys say flame green? I use the smoke fire line and love it. give the low down on why you feel the green is better.

Brother-in-law fishes MN. walleye trail does excellent and i know for a fact that you won't catch him fishing anything besides spiderwire braid the twenty doller a spool stuff. His #1 go to is open water jiggin, i haven't switched just because i love to cast alot with my stradic also and that spider wire takes a dump if you cast it as much as i do. good luck

I just like green because it is easier for me to see when I am tying with it. I have always used high vis stuff I used to use trilene solar which also was a bright green. I have a friend that uses the smoke color and he likes it but I find it harder to see which might be a good think in the water since the fish wouldn't be able to see it but I don't really think that it matters that much.

10 lb spiderwire with yo-zuri hybrid leader.

I also agree with Icehawk- Sensation is a solid line for jigging.

I haven't used it yet, but I think the spiderline super mono XXX looks like it has potential.

I like the super lines for verticle jigging.Superior sensitivity and instant hooksets when needed ,and gets you down deep and quickly.You just can't go wrong.I have a rod set up just for jigging so I don't worry about casting.I have another rod set up for pitching jigs.I had the fortune of running into a 10,000 yrd spool of Fenwick Iron Thread in 8lb that is no longer made and thats what I have been using but when I run out(if ever!)I will probably go with spider wire.

6lb dia power pro w/ 6 lb. p-line leader. Snags snap off, and the p-line is also strong & low-stretch.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
