Thanks for the replies everyone! I usually just fish with mono, just a preference thing, may just go with 6 or 8 lb. what do you guys think?

I used Trilene XL 6 to 8 pound in the past with no issues.

Hey thanks for the info everyone I really appreciate it. Also FatRap, you just raised another good question, does it really matter if you use "Ice line" or not? I didn't think it would, i buy it anyway just cause it's there.

Spooling question... should the braided line be taped to the spool to prevent it from spinning once a monster is on the line?

A little strip of plumbers tape stops that problem, and sits much better then electrical tape.

all I have ever used is 8 lb mono,i like the bright colour lines for outside tip ups either orange or green, easier to see on the snow and ice after you handbomb up a fish,never used a floro leader,been working for me for over 30 years fishing on nipissing

I always use 8lb green mono line (easier to see in the snow)and sometimes with interlocking snap swivel I never use a steel lead because I've been told it deters the fish. But I'm sure other people use them.

I use 6lb Fireline. Going to add a 4-6lb fluoro leader this year. Lots of different opinions on swivel vs none. I usually do very well in our group each year and I usually use a swivel for ease of changing. Maybe I'll try tying on for one rod this year to see if there's a difference.

I'd go with suffix mono 6 or 8 lbs. Been using that brand lately and am very impressed with its characteristics on soft water. And it held up very well on my trip up north last January. I would highly recommend it.
