    Does anyone recyle there mono line or just throw it away? We just spent the day putting new line on 36 defferent baitcasters and 20 spinning reels. I have now got a 5 gallon bucket over flowing with cajun line. It seems like some one should have come up with a good use for this stuff, I just aint never heard of it. I know about the recycle bins at the lakes, but I just wanderd if anyone has thought of a good use for it.

    :smile2::big_smile::smile2: Roundhill, cajun has been pretty good to me. I know some don't like it, but at the price I get it & the fish it has brought in for me I'll keep it.But thanks for the laugh.

    I just thought maybe someone has come with away to use it for crafts or something.

    There are programs out there that can install or send you the stuff to install line recycling places. I know I was pretty peeved tonight at KY DAM getting huh up in all the stinking line around the rocks. (lot of it is from ppls snagging there) but none the less, was irritating .
    I found this from a website, " Recycled monofilament line can be turned into such things as polyester yarn for carpet, filler for clothing and packaging, artificial fish habitats, tackle boxes, and other plastic fishing-related products."

    For a different stroke, try jugfishing for crappie (where legal). Simply take a piece of 10#-15# mono, attach it to a small jug, measure out how deep you want to fish. Tie on a regular gold wire crappie hook, add a small splitshot above the hook, just like you would if you were using a rod & reel, and toss out the jugs where you think the crappie are.
