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

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
