Red Power Pro

9 posts in this topic

Hey, Has anyone tried using the red power pro braided line on Mille Lacs? (Or any of the red lines for that matter). I've got half a mind to give it a try.

I was using red cajun mono on my bobber rig on monday and boated more than the other 3 in the boat. Worked great for me.

All the feedback I've heard from muskie fisherman regarding red Power Pro is that it bleeds. If you use it, expect your hands to be pink for awhile. Also, avoid wearing light colored clothing unless you're looking for the pink tie-dye look.

i caught a rod & reel on saturday that looked like it had been underwater since fall or longer. it had a flourescent green line like ive never seen. i wonder if it is the line you are talking about? the rod is a shakespear graphite, 6'6"-medium action 2 piece with a crooked end eye, and the reel is a 3 bearing shimano. i also caught a crawdad. my fishing buddy caught a rock...it was about the size of a tennis ball and he brought it up.

MNtuff,

Did your buddy get the rock by Shaws reef or Doe Island? I have caught rocks in that area before when I was ice fishing. I also have lost a couple of polls (with kids in boat) like you stated on Doe island reef when I was trolling. I never had green line before though.

shackbash,

it was in the SSW part near spirit island... im wondering if the flourescent green line is power pro? i use fireline mainly and im not sure about using flourescent line. other than that, its cleaned up but i have to take it apart and grease/oil it, then it will be useable.

regards,

PP is dark green or red. I sure would take apart reel and clean/lube. Its a find of a season...

Just received the 100lb Power pro Phantom Red and put it on my trolling rod(Muskie). It did leave some red dust when spolling it onto the rod and real.I have used the dark green Tuff line XP for a very long time and have not had an issue with that. I will report my findings after I get to use it. I would assume I'm going to get some bleeding as described.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
