Silly Line question

Recommended Posts

So we got about a month til opener, do you guys spool up your line now or wait til a week or so before. I know it wouldn't matter for braid, but talking for mono and flouro which can coil up while sitting on a reel spool.

You can spool up now then just put your reel in the freezer until you go. It wouldn't coil then. ;)

I spooled mine up a month ago when I started fishing the river :-)

I knew some wise Apple was gonna say this.:grin: So when did you spool up your line for the river then?

A week before I started fishing the river. I think it was the first week in March when I had most of my stuff spooled up.

Spool it up now. Go cast in the yard a dozen or so times to train it to the reel. Good to go. The sun is harder on mono than anything else, so keep it in a rod locker, in your garage, etc. No worries.

I change Fluorocarbon on my reels so much it really doesn't matter. 

Fished out of a Boat for bass in MN all winter.

My gear is always ready.

Your not a normal Bass guy though, your superbassman or part fish! :grin:

I spooled everything up last week, so I'm ready now.

SBChucker, do you get it cheap?  Or just feel the need to change your Fluoro that much?  Or I guess fish a lot of tournaments competitively?

Buy the Bulk 1000 yard spools from Tackle Warehouse during their 25 days of savings in December. Seguar Red Label is 40 to 60% off.

Can afford to change it out every 3 or 4 weeks.

Piece of mind is priceless.

Exactly, nothing normal about the conditions I will fish in.

Not many guys were fishing out of a 20 foot Skeeter this winter.

Fished 8 to 10 days a month out of a boat for Bass all winter long.

Caught an absurd amount of fish too.

Understood, I'll have to keep watching the 25 days of savings deal.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
