I need a line!

Recommended Posts

I need a good line for fishing line for jigging walleye, perch, crappie and the ocassional northern. I think I am going to try Fireline Crystal in at least 12 lb. What should I use?

I haven't used crystal yet but I've got 4 reels spooled with it for opener. I wonder why you think that you need 12# though. I use 6# for jigging and 8# for everything else.

I don't know why anyone would need more than 8 lb of the new braided lines. I bought some Power Pro 8 and I've lifted some big logs off the bottom with that. You can't break the stuff and its hard to cut but surprisingly a Northerns teeth will cut through it like butter.

The next spool I purchase will be 6 lbs.

Maybe it's evolution?... smile.gif

The better fishing reel you have the smaller diameter line you can use effectively for fishing.

When I first started fishing as a kid, 15$ reel; 15$ rod. You'd bet I was using 12lb 14lb test lines. I used 8lb and was losing fish on line break, well except for pannies. Smaller diameter line would only twist and tangle up. The bigger line was easier to fix.

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams.

      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in.

      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
