Try posting this in the bass forum. You'll get a lot of hits there.

I think you can't go wrong with an Abu Garcia Ambassator C3 for your first one. I think I have 6 or 8 of them now. After you get that one down you can upgrade to a more expensive/higher performance low profile one.

First are you fishing bass, northern/ musky, or walleye? I just got 2 for bottom bouncing walleyes, and can double for bass fishing. Cabela's prodigy which is a Diawa reel works well. I may even try it for light musky baits.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
