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.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
