fireline

6 posts in this topic

When you use fireline on your ice fishing rods do you use sometype of flouro or mono as a leader or do you tie your hooks straight to the fireline? Thanks!

I put mono on first for like 20 yards maybe, just like on a casting reel. Then i tie the fireline on, i put my jigs right on the fireline and have never had problems.

Thats what i do to. Just put a mono backer in the reel first and put the fireline on. I also tie right to the jig.

I should have put before it pretty much is a must to put mono on first, before i put it right on the spool and i was fine untill i got into some real cold temps where my spool contracted cause of the cold and you could just peel the line right off.

I tie it directly to the lure. I've caught my fair share of fish this year and see no problem with it.

      I have been out the last 3 weekends without success.  Although I do know my boat and equipment are all in working order!  Water has stayed in the low to mid 50's during this period.  I have fished Balyntine, Francis, and Big Jefferson.   I have fished shallow, suspended, and deep.  Having fun and know I'll soon be in the zone!

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?
