Thorne Bros Spooling

Recommended Posts

After I go get my new Curado today from Cabelas I am going to go to Thorne Bros tomorrow to get it spooled up with some line. Do you guys at Thorne spool off of bulk spools and charge by the yard or do I just buy a 150 or 300 yard spool and you spool it?

Thanks for the help.

They spool off of bulk spools and charge by the yard. If I remember right its one price for the mono backing and then another for the Tuf Line or whatever your having put on.

I was just looking around on the thorne bros HSOforum for the stealth florocarbon leaders but couldn't find them. Do they still stock them in the store? I will be making a run over there about 230 or 3 today to get all spooled up and I need a few of those leaders.

Thanks,

Ryan

I think they have them in the store, if not the Thorne fluoro leaders are a good leader too. 80 & 130 test, something like $4 a piece.

thorne makes their own leaders. they do not carry stealth. the difference between a stealth leader and the ones at thorne are zero beside the name. they both use the same snaps, the same flouro leader materials, and components. brett has been makin them there for a long time and they are put together very well.

Cool, thanks for the clarification!

I've only used the Thorne leaders so I'd never really looked to see what else is there! No need to, as the Thorne leaders are great.

if you decide to get them, be sure to grab the 130# ones. they will help you decide there too, but you dont wanna accidentally grab the 80# ones. i am still using a bunch of mine from three years ago. just needed to change the snaps. awesome leaders.

The Thorne fluoro leaders are crimped only where the Stealth ones are both crimped and tied. They're both excellent fluoro leaders and the only two that I would be willing to put on the end of my line. I've been using the Stealth ones for a couple years now with nothing but great things to say about them.

    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • 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........
