Search for "Pixie". I think Daiwa makes it. It's not cheap.

many of your good qaulity low profile, long cast, baitcasters should be able to take care of you. i can toss 1/8 oz. lures with mine with no problem. anything smaller i go to a spinning reel! del

Shimano Fan:

I would use it for ice fishing...w/out all the bells and whistles if they make one same size.

There's a round baitcaster

calcutta 50B

The Chronarch MG is an excellent reel in my opinion. I put those on a couple rods this summer and the lightweight factor is incredible! Also casts like a charm and has suprisingly a lot of power. Porbobaly one of my go-to reels right now...

Go on ebay and find yourself a Garcia 521XL Plus, mine is great, don't use it that much but love it when I do. smile.gif

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
