Default Mono color on Mille Lacs

Buddy and I were having a couple cocktails, solving most of the world's problems, when the topic of Trilene mono color on Mille Lacs came up. We both buy 3000 yd spools, so not all colors are available. He swears by Low-vis green, and I generally run clear. Which of these two would you opt for?

I tie direct to most of my lures so for me the low vis is easier to see. To be honest i'm pretty sure the fish don't care. However is can see a couple more cocktails in your future settling this debate.

Solar Orange works very well for most fishing and the bright orange makes it easier to see the fish bites.

I have ran both on mille Lacs...




Low Vis green is what I have stuck with. With the water so clear out there, especially this year, I have been running longer fluoro leaders.


I was running Neon Orange Suffix Braid this weekend at a tournament out there and it didn't seem to effect my catch rate.

I suspect that for most bodies of water and typical fish could care less about the color of the line.

I suspect that it is more important to be able to see the line to better know when a fish bites.

Be safe
