      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Abu Garcia Veritas and Vendetta

Recommended Posts

Anyone use these rods. All the reviews I have found seem to be pretty positive but seem to be from mostly bass fisherman. Was wondering if anyone has used them Walleye fishing. I was thinking of going with a 7' Veritaas paired up with an Orra SX for casting cranks from the waders and a 6'3" Vendetta paired with an Orra S for jigging. If anyone has any reviews of these rods or reels it would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah what do bass fisherman know? smirk

But on a serious note, I have no first hand experience yet but plan on buying one of the Veritas rods myself. They seem like really nice rods and I too have heard good reviews. The Vendetta dont impress me as much.

I guess I may have not worded it the way I should have have. Most of the reviews I have read are from people pitching jigs and other applications that are mostly casting rod applications. I myself am looking at a couple of spinning rods. Not that there should be a big difference but there may be. Didnt mean to say that I do not want bass fisherman input, any input would be awesome so I am sorry for coming off that way.

Just giving ya a little razzing no feeling were hurt.

I see what you're saying about mainly bass fisherman doing the reviews maybe because it seems this line of rods is geared more towards the bass fisherman, not to say it wouldn't catch a walleye just as good. A good rod is a good rod regardless of intended species.

I have two vendettas and will not consider purchasing another. They fish well in my opinion in terms of backbone and sensitivity. However, I've had the same model blow to pieces on hook sets twice. I considered the first one a fluke. The second time was last September and it exploded like a gunshot. I ended up with an 8" section of the rod sticking out of my chest (I was wearing a light T-shirt). It buried itself about 3/8" and I still have the scar. ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION IN THE BOAT!!

For what its worth, that was the 7'2" Heavy Action. First time I was casting frogs and the second time was a football jig.

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring.
