Rapala Line

11 posts in this topic

A large national chain store has a ton of Rapala Line on clearance for 1.97 and 2.97 a spool in any weight 4 -14 lbs. Is this stuff any good. Never used the stuff myself, but if someone can tell me that it's good stuff I might have to pick up a bunch.

I have used the rapala line for the past 2 years and have liked it. It seems to have a low memory(for me at least, others may say different) and does not break off as some other lines i have used. How long is the line on sale for, i am going to have to go buy a bunch of it, that price is unbeatable. Email me and let me know what store has it. weatherman_01 at yahoo dot com

I used the 4lb. test Rapala Finesse line and it held up all last season without a line change. Spring trout, crappies, bluegills, etc. Low memory and is the best casting monofilament I ever used. I'd buy a load at that price...

I have used the Rapala Finesse for a both ice fishing and open water and like the low memory it has - especially in the cold. I haven't had any problems with it at all.

hey wishiniwerefishin,
I don't need to email you I'll just tell you. It's a chain with the initials G.M. and I've been in both the Burnsville and Bloomington stores and there is a ton of it on a clearance table. Looks like it's on sale until it's gone.

I think they have two formulas, finesse and tough. I tried some finesse 4# last year ( on clearance) and it broke very easily to the point where I might try tough but would not buy the finesse again

I have used both tough and finesse in summer and in winter. I found the finesse to be a great winter use line and never had any breakoffs with it. I always use a flouro leader as well. It's comparable to Berkley XL with less memory. It's a steal at that price if you ask me.....

    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
    • Spotted it on the way back from getting wood and tried to sneak up on it. 
    • Hawg - please take down my post - didn't mean to offend or break any rules     
    • I looked it up on google and found it but not the sprinkler it was $12.99. I don't remember what it was.
    • Just went home for lunch and....he's back.
    • Within the last few days the bluejays have discovered my suet cakes.   Also have a hairy woodpecker that has appeared recently.
