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
