#2 or #4 lb MONOFILAMENT

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has ever used
Tectan monofilament line? normally I use
Stren Magnathin #4lb, I've notice Cabela's been selling it for years out of the catalog
also does anyone know if they sell it out of the store down in Owatonna? or do I have to order it from the catalog,

thanks,

I've been using Tectan mono for a while now and it has worked well for me. It has the smallest diameter of any 2lb line that I could find and has proved to be tough for the diameter.(I'd use 1lb if I could find it)

It comes in a sealed package that will let you keep it for quite a while without oxidizing on the shelf.

definitely
had problems last year with breakage using light trilene line. so a buddy of mine and i went to cabelas and started looking at the nice selection they had. still confoosed as to which way to go a salesman came up to us and started asking Q's. after about a half hour of back and forth we decided to split a package.
about a week later we had split another package for our other reels.
he has stepped up to the big stuff for his cat rod. i have not yet.
no plans to change lines before the first outing. figured we would see what happens.

definitely limp and strong. this is what we wanted for the panfish setups.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
