In Topic: Can anyone recommend a 10lb and 30lb fishing line?

14 August 2019 - 02:56 PM

You don't need to fish with cable you will catch way more with 8lb Berkeley clear mono and your set. Don't go green or florescent just plain old clear.

 

You need a decent rod and reel and set the drag right but putting on Braid that's four times stronger than the fish your going for is just rookie and you know the rest of us are laughing and thinking do you have that shiny Shimano jacket also?

 

I do change my line a lot but I just think it goes with getting ready to head out on a trip and mono does not last long so change it often. 

 

I've fought salmon musky you name it on 8lb mono. It's called drag boys.

 

Last trip one person used 12lb the other used 8lb and the score was  1:12 so go figure, same lures same everything except the line size.


In Topic: Rigging Up Your Canoe For Fishing

I've never used those pontoon things but I can see how they could help but I really only use the canoe when it's portage trip and just more to carry. 

 

I personally always liked a canoe with the tri keel lines because I found them to be very stable compared to everything else not that I have ever really had a problem.

 

And don't forget if you run a trolling motor like I do so I don't have to paddle you are required to have your boaters card on you. 


In Topic: The Soo suggestions wanted

That area is a fishing heaven. Bring some top water baits for the SM and don't overlook smaller bodies of water on rough days.

 

I pulled some monster Pike out of what we would call drainage ponds on one nasty day. It was like there were alligators living in the weed surrounding the lake/pond.

 

I forget where I got the map but check the local stores they have one that gave a detail description about what to expect in various lakes but really you should have no problem catching some decent fish.
