I have Cajun Red on all but one of my combos. The only one I don't have it on I have Berkeley on, because I mainly use that set up for walleyes, and it is a heavier line.

I think if you asked this question in the Crappies-Sunfish forum the overwhelming response would be 2 or 3 pound P line or Gamma copoly. Very popular, a bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for. Do a search if you're interested in the pros and cons.

I still use vanish in the winter. If my reel doesn't have vanish on it, I put a snell on it out of vanish. I've been outfished using the same rig as the other guy with the exception of not having vanish. Put the vanish on and pounded them.

P Line and Gamma copoly are just about the only lines on my ice fishing reels (except for 1 or 2 spools of fireline crystal).

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
