mono leaders

Recommended Posts

i usually use mono leader of vanish line on my tip ups for walleyes. I was just wondering if anyone also uses a mono leaders on their jigging poles, when using jigging spoons like swedish pimples or buck shots and those types of lures

I use floro-carbon on all my poles. From panzies to eyes. A few walleye poles have fire-ice fireline and 4 foot P-Line floro-carbon leaders tied together with surgeons knots.

Good Fishin,

Trapper

I'll also use a flourocarbon leader on some of my tip-ups when going for walleyes as well. Works pretty good. Only problem is that those pike like to come by from time to time and break you off smile.gif

Good Fishin,

I dont know why but last year at about mid ice (late December) I was catching Pike on mono leaders and not having them break off! Almost each one was hooked deep in the roof of the mouth. But I think their mouth was soft and their teeth were not as hard as they are in summer. (O boy not to start that myth again LOL) So that equals less break-offs. BTW I was only using 6lb and/or 8lb mono. But on early ice in shallow water they are just as tuff and strong as they "normally" are.
I lost a salmo lure to a Pike once already this year b/c I was using fireline w/ no leader on. Oops, and $5 into a Pike. rolleyes.gif
On walleyes I use a mono leader all the time with no problem. On both rattle reels and tip-ups.

I use the same set up as Protrapper, but I use a small inline ball bearing swivel instead of the knot.

I am lousy at the blood and surgeon knots, so I went to the swivel.

The swivel cuts the spinning of the lure to almost zero.

I use a barrel swivel, 8# firewire, and #12 treble. I have never had a walter or northern bite me off with this setup. The firewire is very thin, with no stretch.

Good Luck

    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
    • wow.....thats cool......................hmmm idea for da next bear, whenever i get drawn and get one !!!!!!!!!
    • Well no reason to come back out of the woods or off the lake ice fishing this year at noon on Sundays!  😕
    • I don't get the concept that we won't get anything in return for him.  If you are using that theory look at Kawai Leonard...San Antonio seemed to get something for a guy that everyone knew was not gonna work with San Antonio and everyone said they would only get something from the Lakers but Toronto stepped up made a play and the word is that they may be the front runner on resigning him!  Look at Paul George...he was in the same boat that he was not gonna resign with anyone and the Thunder took a chance and now they have him on the books for years to come cuz he changed his mind.  Players in the NBA seem to change every month as to what they want to do.  Get rid of Butler, get some good assets, and move on.
    • I have about 100 left.  Hoping to use them up before the ice season.  The commercial flats do not have a cover and we slip them into a Menard shopping bag.  I have a 1/3 flat (or so) with a cover that is keeping them inside.
