Ice Fishing Tips -Check your local regulations! > Jigging

ice buildup on line

(1/2) > >>

idtrout:
When Jigging for perch I'm usually sitting outside and not in a ice shelter. After jigging awhile i get ice forming on my line from from putting line down in water and taking it out. When ice forms it becomes difficult to reel in and strip line off . So my question is there anything i can do to keep ice from building up on my line, or are some line better than others. I use Berkeley micro ice as my mainline.

eyeflyer:
When conditions are right ice is going to freeze on your line. Lots of "ice free" gimmicks out there but never used or heard of anything that is 100% or lasts very long term. Just part of ice fishing.

hardwater diehard:
Bigger eyes and longer rods..mono better than most other lines .. Bigger eyes longer ice build easier to remove ..longer rods allow to to closer to the ice hole less ice to remove overall also good for keeping line from blowing around

Yep, reach down and grab the line at the tip and strip the ice off of it, every now and then.  It's been done millions upon millions of times and it's the only tried and true way to keep ice off of a line, if you're sitting outside.  Sorry, just had to do it!

Yep or invent heated line ;)
Tried lip balm and fly line treatment for ice, none worked liked I thought
