At a Glance: Ice Line
Ice fishing line is specifically designed to withstand the freezing weather necessary for ice fishing. The line is manufactured to stay relaxed and pliable in and out of the frozen water, and not break when reeled in against sharp ice. Since ice line is designed for colder weather, it needs to be stored away from sunlight and warmer temperatures. Most ice line brands are made of a monofilament, copolymer, or fluorocarbon line. The line is then covered with a special coating, preventing it from holding water.
Available ice line brands at FishUSA include Berkley, PowerPro, HT Enterprises and Sufix.
