I use suffix i think it is one of the best on the market today. I use their heaver lines for catfishing pike and salmon. Works well in rocks and brush.

I have heard good things about Sufix, but I am still a Trilene guy. I have used Maxima before and found it to be a little stiff, but very durable. I do not like the Iron Silk, but I know a lot of people like it. Once again, line is line and most likely its made in the same factory like much of the fishing equipment these days.

I spooled one up last night to go to the river this weekend and let me tell ya, it looks like a spool of silk and goes on just as smooth!! WOW! now lets see it in action!

I have Suffix on a couple muskie set-ups (65 & 80) and a couple bass (30lb) as well. I really like it, packs well on the spool, smooth, and casts well. Cost is about the same as P Pro, but I may switch more over from PP to Suffix.

I've used Sufix ice line, and was impressed probably my favorite ice line to date. VERY limp, with little memory. One minor drawback is that is has a little higher stretch than I'm used to, but the other positives outweighed the negative.

I hope it is good, I just spooled up 12 Walleye rods, 14 pike rods, 8 musky rods and 5 sturgeon rods with it. I tried it out last year and was very impressed with it. 32 boxes of line it better work out.

I used it for Musky and catfish last year and it out performed my old standby Whiplash that turned into Spiderwire Stealth. Cast better, knottted better and tougher then a boy named Sue.

So you guys talked me into trying this line and I have it on two reels. I was getting that itch so I was getting my rigs all ready. The line is jumping off the spool. It is the weirdest thing I have ever seen. I put my line on all the time and did nothing different, but if this is how Sufix performs out on the water, I am going to freak out. I am seeing some twist in the line, but it should not effect it that much. Any suggestions? Someone told me to start the boat and let the line out the back (no lure) and that will remove all twist and memory issues. Can anyone confirm this? And yes, I know that the line needed to be put on the same direction as the spool itself.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
