Line Question

5 posts in this topic

I have green braided Power Pro fishing line on my reel. Will this work for fishing these waters, or do I have to go to a mono or fluorocarbon for better results?

Anyone?

It all depends on what type of fishing your going to do. In my experience super lines work great for Lake Superior fishing - especially for trolling or deep water jigging(I also use them for casting). I have gone to the lighter colored crystal and use flourocarbon leader at least three feet. I guess the only place I wouldn't use it is drifting spawn in the river

Yup,Dave hit on it right. Superlines work well, and now even better with Fireline Crystal... If you have a moss or green colored line, just add a leader using a back to back uni-knot with some mono or fluoro.

Thanks guys. I was ready to respool 4 reels with 20 to 25 lb mono, now I'll just add mono or fluorcarbon leaders.

All of my superlines are green and I plan on trolling some rapalas in the shallows then go deeper with dipsy divers.

I've been running 8lb Fireline with a 10' leader. Seems to be working. Got to have that leader, so that when you snag up, the line will break before your rod. I've donated a few lures to the lake. As far getting deeper I get down 20-25' with tail dancers at 200' out. Trolling is all I have been able to do there lately be cause of the wind. Good luck.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
