Ice Fishing Pennsylvania / Re: Gloves
« Last post by skifisher on Today at 02:57 PM »
After suffering near frostbite duck hunting several years ago, ANY glove is a no-go for me. I use faux fur lined mittens with a military surplus wool mitten liner. Easy on and off, and the liners are inexpensive, and easily replaced. Unless you want to put your hands in the water, definitely the way to go for warmth!

I don't see why your line choice would be any different from a spinning or baitcasting reel. I like 8# or 10# braid with a 4# mono leader, but that's just me.

It can make a difference with fluorocarbon. An 8 or 10 lb fluoro sometimes falls off a spinning reel spool in coils when you don't want it to. That can't happen with a baitcaster.

I'm using baitcasters on my outside rods this winter. Braid freezes outside and 8-10 lb fluoro is easier to control when the spool is contained on each end.

My rule is 3# flourocarbon.  Most of the times I am fishing in 10-25 ft of water.  Rarely go deeper than that because of the threat of killing panfish.  Pros will say shallow to go to 2# mono, and deeper than that to go to either flourocarbon or braid.  I fish lakes that have northern, so not going to risk the 1# upgrade.

If I am fishing walleye - then its a spinning reel and either flourocarbon and braid mixed in.  Started using more braid last year and going to continue that trend.  6-8# test on either of the line. 
Ice Fishing Maine / Re: Found some early ice

You're braver than I am, Josh. I'll fish on the early thin ice but the only gear I bring is an old Mora hand auger and an inexpensive jig stick. If I break through I won't feel bad about leaving anything behind and won't be tempted to take any risks to recover it. The flasher and battery auger can stay safely on shore until I have more confidence in the ice.

What is the most common line used on a inline ice reel for trout and pan fish?

Most common line for inline reels is probably some kind of mono or fluoro

For me, on my inline reel, I use 2 lb Maxima Ultragreen (mono)

On most of the rest of my reels (spinning), I run a mix of Fireline Micro Ice (Crystal) w/ some kind of leader or straight fluoro (lots of good options including some of the 3G or 4G fly tippet) or mono (mostly Maxima Ultragreen + Sufix Ice Magic).
