ammendment: if I'm fishing somewhere with a likelihood of snagging, especially using expensive cranks, I use braid heavy enough to try to pull myself off.

I once spoke to a wise man at the NW sports show and I came to the conclusion that it's what works best for YOU! It's a combination of what you feel the most comfortable using. I personally use a lot of Mono/Copoly as of right now I just feel more comfortable throwing it and feel as though I have more confidence in controling the spool and bait. I also fish very little HEAVY vegetation so I only have braid spooled on one rod

Its not only what works best for you, but what you have confidence in. If you don't have confidence in the line you are using you will blame it for losing a fish that was really your fault and other things like that. So with that being said here is what I fish.

Braid- spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, jigs, heavy texas rigged plastics, slug/senko.

Mono- crankbaits, topwater, light texas rig, jigworm.

I have yet to use any floro, and although I probably should in some instances, I like what I use now so why change.

I currently use Yo-Zuri ultra soft and/or hybrid for everything. I have had no problems with it at all to speak of. I use it in 6lb test up to 20 and literally for everything from slop to drop shotting...works for me.

I agree most of it is personal opinion but in some cases there are lines you need to use to stay ahead of competition. Do most agree with this or am I going in the wrong direction

    • 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?
