I am still not sold on one type of line over the other, what is everyone's favorite line and test of eye's? I find my self just staring at the shelve at Gander when I try to decide....

I also am not sold on all the different kinds of line. I have all ways had my best luck with plain old Trilene XL and until it fails that is what I will use. I very seldom will go heavier than 4 lb every great once in a while I will go to 6 never more. I have iced many 6 plus pound fish on the 4 lb test and have a 10 lber on the wall from 4 lb test, just go slow and be careful, hope this helps

There are many different types of line for different applications. During ice fishing season I do a lot of jigging as do most people so I look for a line with low memory and low stretch. You want low memory so your line does not get all twisted up and tangled up in the reel and you want low stretch so you can feel the slightest of bites. There are many different lines that offer this it is what ever product you have the most confidence in, personally I do not like Berkley products but that is just my opinion power pro ice is one of my favorites.

    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • 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.
