Gama mono

Recommended Posts

Seemed a bit stiffer to me than the Trilene XL. I used it for a couple years and then switched back to XL. Not a bad line, just a preference I think.

Gamma line is the real deal, very strong, maybe a little on the stiff side for some folks but I can fish successfully with 4lb where others normally would use 6lb for walleyes, I will not go back to Berkley anytime soon. 2c

All my walleyes caught this week in the middle of the sheet ice was with Gamma 4lb... whistle

I love it. I have used it year round for the last 6 years. Its a copoly so it gives you small diameter. Has less memory than mono. For me it has worked well, nice and strong.

I have been very happy with Gamma. It has been my goto line for about 3 years. I have found it to be very tough and yet sensitive. It is on most of my walleye rods.

Been my #1 for 7 or 8 years on my walleye rods. Stands up to the rocks and teeth in Canada very well. Use 6# all the time fishing as much as 40 feet deep. Will handle a big fish. Used Trilene XL for years and would go back if this wasn't available.

Great line if you can find it. I love the 12# for trolling boards. Anyone who can find the 4# and 6# is lucky.

I love Gamma. Trouble is I can't find it in the 10lb and under. I've haven't been able to locate online either. I need 4 & 6 lb. Any ideas??????

As C.B. said, it was bought by a new company. I talked to the owner at the sportshow and it sounds like it will be available again soon.

They better hurry up. Now is the time when most people are buying line to re-spool. If they wait much longer they're going to loose out on a lot of sales.

fish head- trust me, as I said, I talked to the owner. I used to be on the Gamma pro-staff before they sold out. Im addicted to the line! The problem at this point is not the owner or the product Gamma, its stores. Until they feel there is a demand for the line, they will not order it. The owner of the company is out there trying to sell it to the stores, but they are not buying because people have not asked for it.

Ask for it.. talk to the fishing department managers..

If I managed one of these stores, I would be on these forums everyday. Half of everything on here is people talking about the stuff they want to buy. It's free market research!

Another vote for Gamma. DD got me on that stuff, and it is really the only stuff I trust on spinning rods that is not flouro.

It is the best line I have used. When they sold I went out and bought everything I could find, but finally ran out the middle of last year. Now I am using suffix but wouldn't hesitate to go back to gamma.

It is still out there but you have to look for it. Our L&M in Cloquet has the shelves stocked with 4 to 14lb test.

You can also but it straight from their store.

The company is called blackknightindustries

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
