well, actually i used it with some 35lb braided this weekend out on belle lake near hutchinson, it worked great, and i ended up with a couple decent northern... but i returned the reel today, caus i fish left handed, and the reel only comes in a right handed model, i thought i would try right handen it, but it became much more of a mess than it was worth... so the rod by rhino works great, great feel, and i could definatly tell it was a strong rod. The reel was nice, but i need a lefty version.... any good suggestions on a decent left handed baitcast reel?

i guess i would like it for bass'n and northern'n... maybe a little bit of musky'n too....

Get yourself the best Shimano left hander you can afford, it will be worth it. I have Curados but there should be several steps down that won't break the bank. They last forever and are very smooth and easy to cast.

ABU Garcia makes a bunch of good left handed baitcasters. Although I am right handed I have always used left handed reels. Hate switching hands after the cast. There are better choices in more $$$$ reels but you can't beat the Garicas for under $75.00.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
