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.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
