Fishing Line

3 posts in this topic

Last week I was up to one of my favorite haunts to purchase fishing line. Based on past successes I bought 8# MagnaThin Line along with some 6# Fireline. Most of my fishing is for walleyes in rubble and sand bottom lakes using a modified Lindy type rig.My question is what kind of line do you use for leaders and filling the bulk of your spool? There are so many different kinds of line to choose from. I have my best success use as light of line possible which is thin and green with little stretch. I have used Vanish, Sensithin, and Trilene XL. I am very interested in your choices of line and why you think they are the best for you.
I will be very interested in your reasons. Remember most of my fishing is rigging for walleyes. Thank You

The last couple years or so I have had really good success using 10lb Fireline and a snell made from 6lb Vanish.
It is a MUST to use mono as a backing when using Fireline, makes no difference what kind, even old stuff will do. The Fireline needs something to grip onto on the spool. Without the backing it will slip.

I like Fireline. Thin diameter and very strong. I spool my walleye reels with 6lb and 8lb, it seems as if there is 3lb test on there. I still like to stick with mono when I fish for panfish though.
Good Fishing, Matt.

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
