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.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
