Anybody have any insight/opinions on this red fishing line? Just curious if it is any good or all hype...

Well it fishes like a ruberband and is inconsistant. Just buy FC

I too noticed it to have excessive stretch. It also seemed to have more memory that I find acceptable.

I use the copolymer for snells and I'm very happy with it.

My question is this....why is Cajun line RED? Aren't fish supposed to be attracted to the color red?

I got a free spool of cajun with a pfluger baitcaster I bought...the line is junk.

red is supposed to disappear in water but this makes no sence then why do red hooks that make the lure look like its bleeding? shouldnt the red hook be invisible?

Red is the hardest color to see underwater, but agreed, that's a stupid idea for a fishing line.

I dont care for it but it sells and I see other companies jumping on the red line bandwagon.

Ace, Just my opinion but only used the 20lb red cajun up fishing sturgeon in April. I caught a 52.5, 50, and 5 sturgeon over 48 inches on it. I took about 50 yards off and fished with it for northern pike in canada and had no problems. Just my 2 cents.

I use Cajun Red all of the time for leaders on my walleye lindy rigs and love it!

Very tough knot strength and line strength!

Have used it a few times for live bait rigging and have had absolutely no problems. I just put some fresh line on the spool in the boat the other day and never had to run it out behind the boat to get memory out! blush.gif

I normally use Cortland 6lb. Camo which is far more superior that most of the other popular brands IMO.

But so far can't complain about CAJUN RED!!!

I have about 500 yards of the stuff on my trolling rod and love it. So far no problems. My 12lb. leader broke before the 8 lb did. Didn't seemed that inconsistent considering I had 80+ feet of line out when that happened.

I think it's junk -- way too stretchy, really really inconsistent diameters and break strengths. But it's cheap and easy to see so I use it as backing on my larger trolling reels and it works great for that.

What pound test line are you guys using?

I use ten pound on a 2500 reel and I haven't noticed much stretch or weakness. The other day I pulled up a 1"x6"x4' wood board from 15 ft of water without the line breaking.

I believe the red color is just it's trade mark and does not have much to do with a fish visual perception of sensing fishing line.

You think people would be more concerned on Dia to lb ratio? Using the thinest dia line with the greatest lb test rating. So that when fish take your line they wont be able to notice there is a bit of extra weight it is pulling?

I tried a spool (8 lb) for the first time this year. I've only had one break-off with it and that was due to a little confrontation with the motor...

I don't have any performance or cost complaints with this line.

I had 6 lb Cajun line spooled on one of my ice reels last year. It had horrible memory. I stripped the line off the reel and tossed it halfway through the season.

Red is the first color to be filtered out of water in the light spectrum. With the line being transparent it will be filtered out around 12’. The red hooks and paints are not transparent so light will not filter through them making them standout.

I will use the line on a snell, but never on a reel. I've tried twice and had nothing but a tangled mess.

Like any mono it will have memory. The only way to aviod snarls is to make sure you line is tight while reeling in. Using the stuff on a DM II and no problems trolling cranks or spinners.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?
    • Bigfatbert
      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
