Your catch is only as good as the fishing line you use. Make sure you've got the type of fishing line you need when you're out on the lake or the ice. Choose from a great variety of colors and styles like braid and monofilament made specifically for the cold icy water. We've got them for you in clear, clear blue, smoke, and green.
While you browse through our ice fishing line you'll find many styles to choose from in several sizes and colors. The size determines what break strength your line has. When deciding what size to get it's good to know what species of fish you are trying to catch. You want your line heavy enough that you don't end up with "the fish that got away" (although it does make for a great story!) Keep in mind, however, that usually the lightest weight you can get away with gets you more bites. The heavier the line the more distracting it is to your fish from taking the bait.
Another important thing to remember when choosing fishing line is that quite often your rod and reel have suggested line strengths to use which is determined by the weight or action of the rod itself. A lightweight rod is going to need a lighter weight of line. Your medium heavy rod can use a stronger line, designed to catch larger fish. My favorite line I use is Trilene 6 lb when it comes to ice fishing. It works well for me! For more tips on getting ready for ice fishing check out my blog. Tell me what you think!
