Wow, that was fast. Didn't you just order it a couple days ago?

I like the wood reel seat and the way it contrasts with the chrome around it. Handle looks good and the color of the rod is nice too.

Cabela's will stand behind it too, and I'm sure you'll get hundreds of great fishing hours out of it. I love my Cabela's Genesis rod, and that's a step or two down from the one you just bought.

Only 67 days until April 1st!

Uh-oh...it's begun! I can see it already. Every year, or two you'll be buying a new rod and reel combo to fit a new purpose/species/fly size. \:\)

It's addictive. Just bought a new rod last fall, and still have two more on the wish list. crazy.gif

Congrats. Looks like a nice rig.

For what it's worth, one of the first rods I got was a Cabelas combo too, but not as nice as the one you got. I've put it through quite a bit, but it still keeps on casting.

My guess is they went too light on the Epoxy, so there was less point of contact.

I know you bought it online but I wonder if you can take it right up to Cabelas in Rogers this weekend and take care of it?

Rinc,

Didn't know you were a "fly guy", I'm very impressed! Are you going to try for a muskie on a fly this year? That would be too cool!

I think that would really be fun!

Once you get a little closer to trying it and have a heavier set-up, you should ask some questions of a guy from Oregon who posts on our Muskie/Pike board is PDXFisher. I'm sure he would be willing to help you out, then you can in turn teach me! I was thinking of the couple you caught from shore, how fun would that be on a fly.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
