Line Question

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.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
