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.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
