Cajon Red Ice?

6 posts in this topic

What pound test line should I bring up north?

I'd probably use six pound test. That always seems to work for me. If you are asking about cajun red ice I can't give you an answer as to what test to use because I just took that stuff off three of my reels. I won't be using it again.

Why don't you like it? It seems to work fine for me.

Have been considering trying the red Power-pro.

Was it the Cajun specificly or the red color or what that you objected to?

Would like to hear from anyone on this.

Thanks!

I have had a couple of reels spooled with 6#cajun red ice for a couple years and have had no problems with it. Have other reels with other winter line and they all perform about the same.

Cajon red ice is the only red colored fishing line I've used. I outfished my brother and dad on LOW using it. We were all using the same jig heads and minnows, so I think it outperformed the others that weekend. In the shallow south dakota lakes I usually fish, it doesn't seem to matter.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
