88 2000,

I was probably the one that said I have 8# or 10# Power Pro on all of my rods. Great stuff! laugh.gif

I had the Fireline Crystal on my ice rods last winter and it worked great! I plan to spool a couple of rods this spring with the Crystal to see how well it works on my summer rigs. I think that it will perform well.

I have used the green 8# power pro for the last few years...works great. I tie a mono leader of about 4 ft. ahead of my lindy rig or jig. I find it give me a great ability to feel fish...especially jigging deep.

I like trying different lines. I need to keep a journal because I forget what/when I use different stuff. I, too, like the PowerPro. Why so heavy? I go as light as I can.

Trying some Berkley Iron Silk this spring...

I have always used the moss green Power Pro in 8#test/1# dia. or 10# test/ 2 # dia.

I have used the Iron Silk for leaders and liked it because it has very little memory. The knots are weak though if you do not wet them when you tie them! It also seems to be larger in dia. compared to other lines of the same pound test.

I switched to red line last year, Cajun line from Shakespeare, and have really liked it when fishing for bass or catfish. Haven't tried it yet on Vermilion, but am hoping for the same luck.

It's not so much the color for me, but I really like casting and durability of this line. Those two things are more important to me, and the red doesn't seem to matter to the fish, but makes a good conversation starter.

Do braids and other super lines last longer than mono? I change out my mono frequently.

I am still using the Power Pro from last spring.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
