Jim, when i bought the rod& reel at Galyans they where all out of 6lb. which for fireline thats what i had in mind in the first place. You really dont need the 8lb. it's overkill.
I thought i would try it anyhow as Paul swears by it and he usually catches more fish than i do so i figured it might be the line not the fisherman.(kidding Paul)
I cant believe how strong the stuff is,Paul always cuts his hands trying to pull snags free and now i know why.Thanks for the advice Jim,i'll give it a shot.
By the way Paul i did get a one peice St Croix,not sure if they make a two peice. Give the website a shot,and hurry up and order that baby.Kankakee outing is only 3 weeks away. You need to let me know if your planning on staying for a night, im still planning on staying down there and camping the night of the outing August 10th. Way to hard to get there by 7:00am and fish all day and then drive straight home,i would rather stop around 5:00pm have a burger and some suds and then hit the river again for the topwater bite at sundown. Sounds like fun dosent it?!
By the way i did tell Jim J. we were going to guide ourselves for this outing so he can give the new members a guide instead of us,i do know the Kankakee pretty well where the ISA holds their outing. Let mama know asap so she cant hold you back. Im also doing the Weldron fox trip too and need a canoe partner for the day.Petes guiding!
