THAT’S SUPER! Today will be an ideal one with warm temperatures and light winds with little chance of precipitation. Make the most of it and get casting! On that note we talk superlines today – what works, what’s needed, and what to be aware of.
Featured Photo: NO STRETCH. Superlines like Fireline and PowerPro are known for their no stretch properties, making bites easier to detect.

Moon Phase: Waxing Gibbous (85% Full)
EDGE HOUR: 8:30-9:30PM. Moon overhead in front of sunset will make for a better evening bite in our Edge Hour.
THE BASICS. Superlines have low stretch and are finely braided to provide greater strength and sensitivity, while being much thinner than monofilament. Often coated to help keep the braids together, when the line fades from its original color, that’s the coating wearing off and a signal it’s time to change.
DON’T PULL. While it’s easy to wrap monofilament around a hand to break off a snagged hook, it’s not wise to attempt the feat with superlines. Their ultra-thin diameter makes it easier for them to cut into a hand or finger with a tug. Utilize an old leather glove to complete the break off.
FLOATATION DEVICE. Superlines tend to be more buoyant than monofilament, so when trolling crankbaits, know that more distance may be required behind the boat to get the lure into the desired zone.
