Red Power Pro

Recommended Posts

Hey, Has anyone tried using the red power pro braided line on Mille Lacs? (Or any of the red lines for that matter). I've got half a mind to give it a try.

I was using red cajun mono on my bobber rig on monday and boated more than the other 3 in the boat. Worked great for me.

All the feedback I've heard from muskie fisherman regarding red Power Pro is that it bleeds. If you use it, expect your hands to be pink for awhile. Also, avoid wearing light colored clothing unless you're looking for the pink tie-dye look.

i caught a rod & reel on saturday that looked like it had been underwater since fall or longer. it had a flourescent green line like ive never seen. i wonder if it is the line you are talking about? the rod is a shakespear graphite, 6'6"-medium action 2 piece with a crooked end eye, and the reel is a 3 bearing shimano. i also caught a crawdad. my fishing buddy caught a rock...it was about the size of a tennis ball and he brought it up.

MNtuff,

Did your buddy get the rock by Shaws reef or Doe Island? I have caught rocks in that area before when I was ice fishing. I also have lost a couple of polls (with kids in boat) like you stated on Doe island reef when I was trolling. I never had green line before though.

shackbash,

it was in the SSW part near spirit island... im wondering if the flourescent green line is power pro? i use fireline mainly and im not sure about using flourescent line. other than that, its cleaned up but i have to take it apart and grease/oil it, then it will be useable.

regards,

PP is dark green or red. I sure would take apart reel and clean/lube. Its a find of a season...

Just received the 100lb Power pro Phantom Red and put it on my trolling rod(Muskie). It did leave some red dust when spolling it onto the rod and real.I have used the dark green Tuff line XP for a very long time and have not had an issue with that. I will report my findings after I get to use it. I would assume I'm going to get some bleeding as described.

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      tried this last year,   not worth it in my opinion.    But I always wondered if I could eat the rusty crayfish.  has anyone tried?
