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.
