Nothing more fun.

5 posts in this topic

This last weekeng I ice a 27 inch northern on 4lbs line. The best 15 minute fight ever. I love catching big fish on light equipment. Still my recored is a 14lbs carp on four pound. What the biggest fish you guys brought in on light gear?

I snagged a 28 lb carp in the tail a couple years back tossing a jig and twister for walleyes at night with 4 lb test. When i was young growing up in an area with virtually nothing but carp holes around we used too take our ultra lights with 4 lb test and fish for carp. A guy learns in a hurry catching 7-10 lb carp on light tackle how to catch and land big fish. Doing this is how i learned to backreel. What i blast that used to be.

A few years ago I caught a 5 lb. lrg mouth on 4 lb.test in open water, & a 5 lb. muskie while fishing for sunnies, both on French. Back reeling is what I've come to rely on, it's hard to trust a drag when you have a mis-match going.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
