Thorne Bros Spooling

9 posts in this topic

After I go get my new Curado today from Cabelas I am going to go to Thorne Bros tomorrow to get it spooled up with some line. Do you guys at Thorne spool off of bulk spools and charge by the yard or do I just buy a 150 or 300 yard spool and you spool it?

Thanks for the help.

They spool off of bulk spools and charge by the yard. If I remember right its one price for the mono backing and then another for the Tuf Line or whatever your having put on.

I was just looking around on the thorne bros HSOforum for the stealth florocarbon leaders but couldn't find them. Do they still stock them in the store? I will be making a run over there about 230 or 3 today to get all spooled up and I need a few of those leaders.

Thanks,

Ryan

I think they have them in the store, if not the Thorne fluoro leaders are a good leader too. 80 & 130 test, something like $4 a piece.

thorne makes their own leaders. they do not carry stealth. the difference between a stealth leader and the ones at thorne are zero beside the name. they both use the same snaps, the same flouro leader materials, and components. brett has been makin them there for a long time and they are put together very well.

Cool, thanks for the clarification!

I've only used the Thorne leaders so I'd never really looked to see what else is there! No need to, as the Thorne leaders are great.

if you decide to get them, be sure to grab the 130# ones. they will help you decide there too, but you dont wanna accidentally grab the 80# ones. i am still using a bunch of mine from three years ago. just needed to change the snaps. awesome leaders.

The Thorne fluoro leaders are crimped only where the Stealth ones are both crimped and tied. They're both excellent fluoro leaders and the only two that I would be willing to put on the end of my line. I've been using the Stealth ones for a couple years now with nothing but great things to say about them.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
