Line Color

Does anyone have preference in line color. I've been told that green will out produce clear. I've always used clear and never thought of changing to green. should I?

I try to match the line to the water. I fish alot of stained water so i use a green that blends in better. But if you are fishing very clear water I can see benefits with going with a clear line.

I don't think there are any hard rules to line color selection but this is atleast how I decide what to use.

I asked that question of some bass pros specifically about our MN clear waters and they all said you can use any color as long as it is Lo-Vis Green. smile.gif

Flourocarbon is always a good choice too as for pure visibility factor - might not be best choice for some applications though.

I've heard a lot of chatter lately about the benefits of red line. Appearantly it disappears better under the water because the red doesn't reflect the sunlight at all.

Anyone out there experimented with red fishing line, like the Cajun line?

YES it works awesome!!! I dont see any diff over clear line but it esp works in red stained waters up here like vermillion or white iron. Ive also had great sucees with it in the soup green lakes back home in southern mn and through the ice this yr in the "ultra" clear blue waters.. I dont know about the sunlight deal but it does seem to dissapear under a varitety of water conditions.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
