Spiderwire stealth?

What are your thoughts on Spiderwire stealth? Last year I won a spool of 8 pound test and I have yet to try it. Is it comparable to Fireline or Power Pro? I'm wondering if I should spool it up or just buy more Power Pro.

I have tried both Power Pro and Spider wire Stealth. My vote is Stealth. Never had any problems and I feel it is better casting on spinning reels. I think they are both good products and for most it will come down to preference. I would buy more stealth.

delmuts is right on the money. I had a guy leave a spool of Silver Thread last year. I probably wouldn't have bought any. Long story short, I needed some line for snells so I tried it and was very impressed. I'm glad I did.

Besides, field testing fishing componants doesn't count as a fishing day. It's a work day, at least that's what I tell her. grin.gif

Yeah I'll definately try it out. I'm not 100% sure what application I should try 8 pound test with.

How does stealth compare to the older fusion line. I also have 14 pound fusion that I haven't used.

Stealth is great line if you are going to jig, troll, cast. I use it on all my musky equipent it is great line. Depending on the color of water a 6' florocarbon leader might be good option on the end, if the fish are apprehensive about biting.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
