When is the last time we discussed line types?

I know its late in the season, however, I have found a way to steal three more days on the lake in early October.

I was going to respool. I find myself moving away from the mono's, looking at the Power Pro, braids, etc to get the best feel while walleye fishing.

I loved biting my mono (dentist sharpened an incisor) for quick re-tie. I am getting used to the tougher lines and slower changes and love the feel of no stretch lines.

What do you guys like?

When it comes to walleye and bass ext. I only use 30 lb spiderwire. We fish up in canada all the time and that s the only line that you can rip out out the rocks. With mono you just lose to many jigs and lures. Plus a few years back i had the biggest walleye of my life on, i was using trilene, and right when it got near the boat it snapped off. Thats the last time we ever used mono.

On Vermilion I use 8# or 10# Power Pro all summer.

I tie on a small snap when using jigs so that I can change colors quickly.

I add a 10# mono leader when using Lindy Rigs.

Great Line! laugh.gif

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.
