DerHornen A friend of mine said he likes nanofilament and it ices up less than mono. I've been using 6lb mono and haven't spooled anything up with nanofil yet.

Jfraze10 Thanks for the quick response guys. I got some Mico ice Trilene and some 100% fluorocarbon ice Trilene for leader.

ThreeDogsDown Agree with the micro ice line. I do like a tiny barrel swivel 8 above a clip to reduce my attractor lure from spinning.

On my little jig rod, I tie straight to the jig.

Husker525 Berkeley Trilene Micro Ice Line. I will use florocarbon as a leader sometimes, but it becomes very kinky in cold weather and coils off like a rope if you spool up with it.

ThreeDogsDown I do what you do except I use mono up to a 6 leader of flouro. I have noticed the mono collects ice more than the flouro.

Line for hole hopping

Hey guys I use braid for all my jigging in the boat or in the shanty. But when you are outside in extreme conditions what line are you guys using. I would imagine a 6-8lb mono would work pretty great. Do you use the ice specific lines? I also considered fluorocarbon but I really only use it as a leader anymore with braid. Its been a handful of years since I spooled a reel with fluoro and it became a twisted mess eventually on the spool. Are the new ice specific flours pretty good for hole hopping? Thanks for any input going on a trip this weekend or next and want to spool a back up rod with one or the other.

(Will be chasing walleyes of course. Mostly on the smaller side were I will be fishing)
