Fishing line for eyes at Winnie?

Recommended Posts

mountaindew

I'm pretty much set for the trip up to Winnie. Got pretty much everything set and packed ready for this weekend.

Got 1 more question though..

What kind of fishing line do you guys usually use for snelling at Winnie? Wondering what most people use? I've read from one of the guys saying he uses 4-6 lbs clear line.

That sounds a little light. I went ahead and bought a powerpro line with a 6 lbs diameter line with a strenth of 20 lbs braided line. Wonder if that's too much? Was planning on tying the end of line with a swivel then putting on a snell rig like perhaps a 4-6 lbs mono line on it. Would that work? Or would I lose the "feel" of the line?

What do you guys mostly use? Any advice and tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Jason Boser,

Thanks for the info..

But what did you think about what I said about the PowerPro line? Would that be too much?

A good way to do it would be to use your Power Pro line but use either a fluorocarbon or monofilament leader. I would suggest 6# for the leader line. Don't be afraid to use a long leader (i.e. 5-8 feet).

I saw the power line thing and it does work with a set up like the millacsguy says. I personally dont like them lines for rigging I like a little stretch it gives you alittle more forgivness and lets me hold on the fish alittle longer when I am getting a bite. everybody might not agree with me thats just my thinking.

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.
