going to try leadcore for the 1st time this week and wondering if this reel if big enough for lead core. It says it can handle 360yards of 14lb line? I know the lead core is allot thicker than 14lb. Just trying to get your thoughts.

It will handle a few colors but not a 100yd spool.

what is the best way to spool this stuff. I was told to super glue the line to the spool and start reeling it in?

I have that same reel, but plan on using Power Pro 10/2. I have never owned a baitcaster in my life. I'm currently waiting for my Loomis crank rods to come in the mail. How do I put this power pro on this thing. Thanks for the help guys laugh.gif

The sg47lca will hold 100 yards of 27lb test lead.I put a little duct tape around the spool to get the line started.Just the lead though no backer,ive never fished deep enough to use all ten colors so for me it works.As far as putting power pro on the 27 you will need to use backer.I keep around 300 feet of pp on the spool.Make sure you put enough backer on so when you spool up your pp the reel is at full capacity,this helps to get an accurate reading on your line counter.

backer is just mono that I put on the spool to take up space on the spool.Usually just some old line that id be throwin out anyway.some folks tie their backer line to the line their gonna use but I dont bother.

If the lead core is a different color every 30 feet, why do you need the line counter?

thanks

Koldfront..Your right the line does change colors every 30feet,and its not critical that you have a line counter.However for me the line counter adds a little bit more on repeatability if im trolling a certain depth and say inbetween colors.Im not sure how much difference in price there is between a line counter and one without,but to me its worth the price.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
