When is the last time we discussed line types?

3 posts in this topic

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

      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.
