Yes, you probably could get away with using regular old fishing line when you are ice fishing. But a small investment in a spool of purpose-built ice fishing line can pay big returns. Simply put, fishing lines that are specifically designed for ice fishing will always be the best line for ice fishing. At a minimum, the best ice fishing line will reduce hassles with memory and tangles. Even in the worst-case scenario, it will help you haul up that monster from the frozen depths while other lines fray, snap or break.
Strong But Sensitive Fishing Lines
Of course, there's more at stake with ice fishing too. Fish tend to get sluggish when the weather and water are cold. Bites can be tentative. So you want to use a fishing line that is as sensitive as it is strong. That way you can feel the faintest nibble but set the hook with authority and wrestle your quarry up through the water column, through the hole and onto the ice.
FISH307 offers you a variety of ice fishing lines so you can order the one that best suits your needs. Our fluorocarbon lines are practically invisible, so they are perfect for fishing in really clear water and coaxing bites out of finicky, fearful fish. For feeling the faintest nibbles, consider one of our braided lines. They have practically no stretch, so any tapping on your hook below will instantly telegraph to your hands. For affordability and strong knots, check out our monofilament ice fishing lines.
We carry lines from premium manufacturers, like Berkley, Sufix and Daiwa, so you can count on quality. Choose from a variety of pound tests and yardages.
