5 posts in this topic

Heading up tomorrow morning early for a long weekend. Fishing out of Borderview. Thanks to all the info. everyone posts, all my questions have been answered except, using a flurocarbon leader on the end of the fireline crystal I have on my reels now. Should I use 4 or 8lb test. With the stained water is it necessary confused.gif

Really not nessecary. If you want to go through the trouble I would use the heavier weight line.

My dad uses 30# braided on all of his ice fishing gear (Don't ask me why, he just does) and there are days he out fishes me. I use Power Pro with no leader. If you run into a day were the fish are really finicky and lite biting, then it might be an advantage.

I use power pro alot an when it comes to ice fishing an the rainy I like to tip it with 4lb stren or florocarbon but on a big bowl of rootbeer like LOW everything dissapears, the main reason glow jigs are so effective. Boar

Thanks guys, I have fireline crystal on my reels now. I will keep the fluro in the bucket in case they get picky. Time to pick up some food and get a little sleep if thats possible. Should be up there by 10 am or so. I will give a report late sunday or monday.

One more question, I read that chubs would be good to have in the bait bucket. Are chubs the same as suckers???

      Went up to lake for week of fishing fished Adrian's  Morris point and Long point  6 days on lake. Fished Morris 3 days 18 ft of water west of resort. Did very well on good sized 16 to 18 in. walleyes. Slid out into 22 ft one day and did o.k. there too. Long point was just as good to me if not better fished 30 ft there. We had fish for a few meals and we brought our fish home. Didn't seem to matter what you had on. I used white glow  and pink glow.Sometimes minnow and bobber worked and sometimes jigging worked best. In my opinion fishing was good had no trouble catching fish.
