Default Re: About tippet for Great lake steelheads

I haven't used straight floro so I can't comment on that. I really like maxima in 6lb and 8lb for most of my Ontario trib fishing. I ran out last year and I was in a panic, I couldn't find any close by, so I made an executive decision. I looked through my supply of spools and decided to try some yo-zuri hybrid I had on hand. It's a floro/nylon line, smoke/green. I have 1/4lb spools of 6, 8, and 10lb test. I wound some 6, and 8lb onto old maxima spools and headed out. If you take a look at some of the pics I have posted last year and this year you will see that I had no problem with catching big trout with my new favotite tippet material. Last year was a low water fall season(very clear water) and I managed to land my biggest steelhead and largest brown trout. All with the yo-zuri line for tippet, mostly 6lb. Good luck.

Mike
