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???

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
