Hi everyone, I going to put fly fishing line on my rattle reals, before i spend the $ i need to know what to buy, i've used it in other houses and really like it, but I don't know what kind it was, floating or sinking? Appreciate any advise

Sure fly line is great to use but it also comes with a price unlike some other dacron line. But in your case get the sinking. Why would it make sense to get the floating??? It doesn't need to float all in the ice hole. grin.gif
I'm with Cliff and get 20lb tip-up line which is much cheaper. With this line, if you wanted to, you can run a ice buster bobber on it and it will work just fine (I do it). I'm sure the bobber doesn't fit on the fly line. Nice thing about the ice busters is you can clip them on and off when ever you want and you can just use a really small snap weight for a bobber stop.

We use the sinking fly line. It will last forever and it is easier to handle. Best of all it is much less likely to tangle and is easier to see on the fish house floor.

Have Fun!

I forgot to add, if you can find some vinyl coated solid decoy line (this is line that harpooners use to attach to decoys used for spearing) that stuff works even better. I have some that is 15 years old and is still in great shape.
Have Fun!

    • Did well fishing today. Pitching jigs to the rocks in town produced fish. Also headed north up river and picked up some fish there. Released the females and kept a 2 man limit of males.  Couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather to be on the water.    
    • No pictures tonight because my phone was on the charger but I made no flip, smoked, hamburgers like this. ....   https://grillagrills.com/recipes/no-flip-burger-recipe/
    • Pfunk, I can take one of those jakes out for you! Slow first day for me, just one gobbling at the thunder.
    • You don't need one of those, they're overpriced anyway. Any smoker will do.
    • Thanks Dave. Sure wish I had one of them expensive fancy pellet grills.
    • yep sucker em with gobble call or gobbler yelps on a diaphragm ,they fit nicely in a deep fryer !
    • Man what a frustrating day. Had a pair of jakes that decided to spend their day in our vicinity and they ran off a pair of toms that were cutting across the plowing headed for us this morning, then this evening we were pretty confident the nicest tom we saw today would be headed past us to get back to the roost and sure enough... he followed the script. As I was readying the gun on him those 2 jakes decide to come out of the woods, he sees them, and dumps into the ravine with them chasing behind.    EDIT: Now 3 times they have run one off. That tom just made another attempt to sneak his way in and they ran him off again. Never wanted to shoot a jake as bad as I want these two gone.
    • O i know they can be.  I have a good CO and fire detector.  I had one in my last house and it worked good.  I dont plan on doing much sleeping in it maybe a few times a winter.  
    • It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests.   I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours.    I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour.    Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.
