Going to have to look into hitting up Red in March.

why do they set the hook and reel 2ft above their head? They should get some good thorne bros rods.

I doubt the type of rod is the reason they were reeling in the fish like that. ;\)

Awsome video. Our group fished out of the same house a week after the video shoot. Must of gave them sore lips, cause fishing was slower then that for us. You still can't put a price tag on a "good time fishing!!"

Because I'm a clutz. Often times I have the drag set to light or some other deal going on. The rods that Troy Pike makes for me are perfect for the action I am trying to field, trouble is the rod is only as good as the angler holding it.

Most guys give me a hard time when they watch me fish, my open water hook-sets look like I am in sword fight! \:D

LOL! This might be the most quoted post I've seen in awhile. \:\)

Even with Thorne rods (thats primarily all I fish) I'm setting the hook until I hit the ceiling of the shack. Which is sometime quite the feat as I'm not that tall. \:\) On URL, I keep my drags set very loose. Just tight enough to get a good hookset, but just loose enough to let a big pike or walleye run when they want to right off the hookset. Since I fish a lot outside moving around, this is even more important as the cold, snow, and ice usually tighten (or lock) those reel drags up. I'm constantly testing and retesting the drag, sometimes on every drop to make sure it is working right. I've been schooled in the past on this and I don't want it to happen again. grin.gif

yeah thats funny how u set your drag in the warmth of your house or heated ice shack and its perfect...get outside in that cold weather for a little bit and she tightins right up and needs to be loosed.

i like to set the hook and reel in the same way when i'm jigging....seems like u keep a tighter line and loose less fish bringing them up the hole that way.

I just dont feel like I have control when my rod is above my head, I know whatever works for one isnt for everyone. I just wanted to see where the post would go with the rod thing.

Hooksets???

I'm 6'1". I start on my knees and it's a slam dunk jump come hookset time.

Yeah, I've received my share of comments on that. It's cool tho. I can take it. Say what ever you want to me as I pull a 14" crappie out of a hole. grin.gif Yeah, I'm listening.

Butch Fuertman also had a TV show on last weekend fishing Red with the owner of Northalnd Tackle, soft water though. Still good PR for the lake and businesses in the area. They caught lots of eyes and craps. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Johnny P. good video that you fellas put together.
