fishing line survey

Recommended Posts

i have used many types of fishing line during the winter, but i am wondering what everyone else at FM prefers. It never hurts to ask or try something new.

Berkley MicroIce, Vanish and Fireline.
P-Line and PowerPro too.

I like to use a wide variety and different types for different species. I probably use mostly Berkley products though...

I have looked at the fireline, how does that work in the cold. I have yet to use it in the winter.

Power Pro for me. And to answer one of the previous questions yes lines like power pro and fireline work great through the ice.

Power Pro and Fireline will freeze up quicker than mono when outside in the cold. In a heated house they are fine. After fishing all day make sure to bring your rods inside to dry out. If you leave them out in a cold truck they will be frozen in the morning.

I've been using Fireline for 2-3 years now through the ice. The stuff is fantastic when you are in a heated house. Doesn't work so well outside when it is cold. Icing up is an issue.

I use 6 lb Vanish for walleyes and general fishing. I personally prefer Vanish over Fireline as I found it to be much more sensitive. Fireline seemed very rigid to me.

For light panfish, I use stren high visibility yellow 2 lb test. It really helps me see strikes better than clear or green line.

Power Pro on my walleye setups and Trilene on the panfish. Works good. What I need to find is a good Tip-up line. I havent tried out enough different lines yet for that.

Southbend, or whatever clear line that I can get 400 yards for a buck!

I don't spend alot on lines, I keep the hooks sharp and the drags set just right and I feel I do as good as anyone.

Been doing it for years with no problems, summer or winter.

Sometimes I will use Trilene, but just because I got a few spools for gifts, maybe the givers were trying to tell me something?

At any rate, some of the fellas I fish with, use more expensive lines and there is no obvious advantage that I can see?

Whatever they spool on my reels at Gander Mountain. I think I've got Micro Ice on them right now. Probably need to respool since it's last years line.

    • So did Minnesota!  24,060 troops if I remember the number right.   This is where General Lee threw in the towel on July 4th.  This 24 mile road tour is pretty amazing.  Glad I stopped.   Just a shot to the left of the High Water Mark.
    • papa C brought 2 chicks by
    • @leech~~   My buddy Abe has a lot hair but was nice enough to try the hat at Gettysburg.  
    • And after Oakland its the Yankees! After this Mets series they must have a thing for being intimidated by NY logos on hats.   Wish we could get Buxton back but looks like he will be out for a bit now. I think he brings a lot of energy in the field and on the basepaths. Would like to see him pick it up at the plate more but he certainly brings an edge to the team that I think the other players feed off of.   Early on the team was deep and with a big division lead you could afford to shuffle out players and let the starters rest and heal. And those players were all stepping up. Now the lead is almost gone and injuries are piling up.   Lots of errors and un-earned runs have been ugly lately. We have seen Baldelli stay pretty composed so far this year. I will be curious to see what will cause him to snap or how he will handle all of this from a managing aspect.    Still a lot of games left which I am not sure if that is good or bad lol. I hope they make some moves but also dont want them to give anything up.
    • Yeah, with Oakland in town & on a roll, it could be a long weekend.
    • Does anybody have any experience with Wirelessbuy Unlimited Hotspot Mobile for internet service? I remember seeing it mentioned here a while back, but can't find the post.  I live in a rural area and my only options for internet are pretty much satellite or cell service. Two years ago, Verizon flat out lied about their home internet service to get me to sign up, my contract is finally up.  Is WirelessBuy Mobile actually unlimited Hotspot, meaning there is no data caps, no throttling, etc? This would be hooked up to my router and used as whole home internet. Maybe someone has a better recommendation?
    • Certainly looks like more  of a Saltwater feature, what with requiring an external add on device.
