Lead core line

Recommended Posts

I would like some recommendations on what brand of lead core line to use and what size.

Will be targeting walleye and deep water pike on a northern Mn lake. So Many brands out there and the reviews are up and down from the color on the line comes off to the lead wears through the line to easily. Should a guy use what the salmon fisherman use on the Great Lakes? Or just use what ever brand is sold around St. Paul?

I've always used #18lb cheap stuff, "old school", but there are "super" lead core lines. Better strength and thinner diameters can give you greater sensitivity, and enable you to reach desired depth with less line.

Sufix 832 Advanced and Tuf-Line Micro Lead are a couple brands friends have been fishing with and have had nothing but good things to say about them. Cabela's Depth Master is very similar, but without the sticker shock. Might have to give a spool a shot this year smile

Some things to think about with leadcore line. The suffix line is smaller diameter which allows you to use a slightly smaller reel when spooling up but it also runs about 7' per color versus 5' per color like Guedbro or your other standard leadcore lines. This can make a huge difference when targeting 40'. The smaller line will get you down to 42' with 6 colors whereas with standard leadcore you are looking at 30' with six colors and 40' with 8 colors. 18# and 27# leadcore run different strength Dacron sheaths but use the same lead filament size, I am not sure on the heavier sheaths but would think that the same is true with those to keep you at a 5' per color sink rate. You will need a fairly large spooled reel to fish 8 colors of line.

I've always used the "cheap" stuff just because I've got all my cranks already dialed in with it. If I went with the thin diameter stuff, then I'd have to re-dial everything in.

If you've never done it, then I suppose you can get the thinner, tougher stuff and get used to that. I'm just lazy.

I've Fished for trout and bass with Lead core for some years. Trolling with lead core is basically the only type of fishing I do now.

Lots of fun, and easy relaxing.

Some may fine this useful.

I use the cheap stuff too. 5' of sink rate for every 30 feet out makes pretty easy math for me. Size 47 reel will hold ten colors.

That's a pretty general rule most individuals aren't sure a what speed it applies to,  and  .5 MPH change with six colors out can easily make 9 feet differences in depth.  Plus some brands sink more than others and higher test doesn't mean it will sink more. When I started testing depth results I was surprised at the outcomes.  Lead core sink does vary with speed. I use sufix  performance 18 lb test most of the time.

    • Flushed a hen today and a nice buck
    • Nope, back in Rochester.    No bears to bother my feeders only deer, racoons, and possums.   Deer came this afternoon, she was frustrated since I moved the feeders higher since she emptied them last.   So, she walked off and munched on my apple trees a while then meandered off.    
    • Did well in SD today got my limit in 25 minutes on my first walk today on public land:  
    • Are you still up north on Vermillion Del?    I have to wait for the bears to go into hibernation before I can put any feeders out yet. I have sprinkled a few sunflower seeds on the railings of our deck and have gotten chickadees, rose breasted nuthatches and blue jays but I just don't feel comfortable with feeders yet. 
    • I don't have a portable jumper but I have a few chargers from that noco genius brand you have pictured and they are nice.  No issues.  
    • I bought one at walmart a few years ago when they had for around 10 bucks. should a bought a half a dozen they work so well. Used it to start lawn mower atv, truck and carry  it on the boat for backup and atv when I am riding. I would think like the one listed at the top would be great!
    • We use ours so we can run the T&T on the boats when we are putting them in or taking them them out of storage & don't have the batteries in too. Almost all the family has 1 in their vehicle & don't really need to use it very much to justify the $.
    • That a Boys.  Throwers-threw, receivers-received, runners-ran, kickers-kicked.  Good game. 👏
