Getting Ready for Ice Seaon

Recommended Posts

I have been ordering lots of jigs, plastics, and other things I think I need. My question is I have been having issues with 2 pound test line and am wondering what brands have held up well for you?  I run some 4 pound test, some 3 pound, and 2 pound test. I have been having lots of break offs on 2 pound test. How often do you need to be retying?

I've landed plenty of pike and bass with 2 pound Sufix ice line monofilament. Just replace it often and you're good to go.  The stretch is forgiving if you hook into something a bit bigger than you anticipated, and fresh line is plenty strong. I'm sure going up in test strength will help, although you might lose out on finicky fish.

I really like 3lb line - if I can find it. 2lb is good for the smallest of jigs and when the fish are gun shy - the 2lb line I've used the most and had good success with is 2lb Stren Ice in the golden color.
