Power pro line

Recommended Posts

If you are refering to the power-pro braid, there should be no memory. It is identical to the older Spiderwire, 100% Spectra.

I used Power Pro for all of last year on a couple of my rods and absolutely love it! I wouldn't be afraid to use it in a whole bunch of applications.

Power Pro is my new favorite line. I used it all last year on spinning reels and baitcasting. No memory whatsoever and it lasts a long time too. I would highly recommend using it.

I personally haven't used it yet but I bought some at the Muskie Expo when a good friend of mine(he is also an Abu Garcia rep) said it's 100% better than Fireline. I'll be switching

Good stuff maynard. I use 8# on a jigging rod for deepwater or heavy current situations, I still prefer mono on spinning tackle except in above situation. I use the 20# on bottom bouncer casting rods, 30# for Catfishing on the Red and Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy, and Pike fishing LOW. All my Muskie rods are filled with either 50 or 65#. I do still use 14# fireline for trolling cranks, seem to get less bite-offs from those darn LOW jackfish.

Comparing Power Pro with Fireline is comparing two different types -- Fireline is fused, Power Pro is braided.

My favorite braid is Whiplash, which is made of the same stuff as Fireline, but is braided rather than fused. It is great on applications such as Dipsey Divers, bait casters (bass, walleye), and heavy stuff (pike, muskies). Fifth pound Whiplash on a casting reel is as easy as 12 lb nylon braid.

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
