5 rat Lakers for me this am.  Jerkbaits and blade baits.  Saw A handful of others caught on shiners as well.  It was cold.  Ice on guides was quite annoying.

I use braid and have had iced guides cut my line more than once. Or have gotten bad wind knots from line frozen on my reel. If it's going to be below 34° for an extended period of a day, I dont even bother.

Shimano Ci4+ 5500.  I have it on my 8' 6" century Slingshot. It's an awesome reel. Probably my favourite freshwater long cast reel to date.

 

I also use it on an 11' 1/2 - 2 oz rated TFO for my albie rod. Holy schnikies does that combo bomb 7/8 oz Hogy epoxies a long way.

No there's not. It's a long cast reel. It's designed to be spooled that full.

 

The ONLY time I get a wind knot is if the line's frozen to the reel and a bunch comes off. The ONLY time this happens is when it gets below freezing.

So I got there about 5:50pm after visiting an old fishing buddy in Clinton....I had the entire high tension/fire station area to myself....only saw maybe 6 people as far as I could see, till dark.   The wind died down, but so did any action (of there was any)?   LOL

I think because the frozen water increased the diameter of the line and how it lays on the reel, it would make the line more prone to wind knots.

 

Occasionally it happens to me when ice fishing because the frozen line extends past the edge of the spool when it normally doesn't.
