"FIRELINE", "MONO" ??

5 posts in this topic

I have been using fireline for a few years now..Mostly for walleye's and jiggin'.. I have at times, ran this on some of my panfish poles.. I did not like it due to tearing through those "BIG CRAPPIE's mouth.. Late ice, when playing a game of "CHESS" with the "FAT-n-ROUND" bluegills, or perch,I like it for a quick hook set.. I run mono on poles also.. for a little stretch.. Sometimes I run mono with a smaller dia.fireline leader.. or fireline with mono leader for a little stretch on the end....

I usually run Berkley Vanish all year around. I have caught a lot more fish using it. Side by side with a rod that didn't have vanish on it, it out fishined it using the same lure and setup. I at least use a vanish leader, that way it's a litttle cheaper to run.

I use firefire on all my rods. I use a 2-3ft mono leader on all my panfish rods.

This year I am going to stick with 4# fireline on primary rod St Croix Legend and use the 3# Berkely Ice on my second rod which is a Scheels ML. So far the primary has been great with the fireline. I have the same set up on my two Jason Mithel Walleye rods, one 6# Fireline one 6# Ice. Last year on Mille Lacs I believe the Fireline helped me CRP a 37" Northern. Typically I do not use tipups as I like to keep two rods active, use a rocker on my flip over when I am trying different holes.

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
