"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.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
