I’m going to put some new line on my ice fishing reels before the season starts and was looking for some suggestions. I am using a Ugly Stick spinning combo and mostly jig for perch and panfish but will also target pike on a few of the lakes I fish. I honestly don’t remember what they are spooled with at the moment but the line had a tendency to break when I would tie a jig on. Not sure if it was bad line or the idiot tying it. Any help is appreciated.

I've got all my ice reels spooled with braid.
Tie on a tiny Spro swivel and use a flouro leader, usually 3lb Suffix. I keep several different lb leader material available and change up/set up for conditions.
Braid last a long time so I don't need to respool much.
Only thing with braid is it can freeze up but I'm always in the warm shanty so no prob.

I just tried cast kings mono. Was very surprised how strong yet how thin it was. Other than that I ALWAYS use pline cxx on anything mono related. If I need to use floro, I go with pline floroclear...
