mono leaders for muskies?

3 posts in this topic

I was at Gander Mt looking for some leaders and I came across some 100lb mono leaders for muskie fishing. The package said this leader was better that wire leaders. No ball bearing swivel, just tied, but thought it interesting that mono would be used for a muskie leader, thought it was cool so I bought one, hey, only 4 bucks. Any thoughts? Can you still run bucktails on these?

Hiya -

Guys on Lake St. Clair have run hard mono leaders for muskies for years, and saltwater guys do it all the time for all sorts of stuff. I'd be leery of anything less than 100#, based on my experiences with lighter fluoro, but other than that...

Personally, I'd only use it on something like bucktails rather than something erratic or baits they typically head-hunt like jerkbaits or cranks.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Yeah, I have a couple 110 yard packs of 100 lb mono leader material. I have started tying a few up and will probably use them for bucks like RK said. Spinnerbaits would probably be alright on them too if you choose to use one at all with a spinnerbait. I will stick to wire for most other baits.

    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!
