Not a bit! I have tied #18 drys on 6 lb mono. In the past I have tried those "ice fishing" specialty lines and found them to hav worse performance than regular lines. Also spiderwire is neat 'cause the slightest touch comes through loud and clear,BUT it ices up badly.I also straightened some jig hooks out on the set because of the zero stretch thing. If I was targeting macs at 60 feet I would prolly go with spiderwire and a tippet of flourocarbon.afishman said:slayer do you have any problems with tying small jigs on the 6lb?
I picked up the cajun red up in 6lb but haven't tried it yet. Cut, do you think walleyes can see this? ???Cutthroat said:Something I forgot to mention about the cajun ice line. It's red. I'm not convinced I like it, yet, but the red color makes it easier for me to see on the ice, and since fish (like most animals) do not have the necessary pigments in their eyes to see red wavelengths, the line should be virtually invisible to fish, as well.
And red hooks, too, which are currently all the rage. I think it does make a difference with walleyes. In-Fisherman had an article about colors that walleys see in different types of water conditions, I think it was earlier this year. I'll see if I have it around, it was interesting research.SLAYERFISH said:I've read some studies that the color red disapaers below like 3 ft under the water. If thats so,how cum red on a lure seems to make a difference? I've read that fish are color-blind so they only see shades of gray. Obviously the red relates to a certain shade and they CAN see it,IMO.
