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).

    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
