You know, I'm a guy to spend money on top notch equipment. With fishing gear, specifically rods & reels, you do have to spend some $$$ to get gear that will definitely help you out. But somewhere along the line, I believe you start to lose your return on that investment.

Guess I could buy (3) St. Croix Avid rods with moderately priced, yet high quality, reels for about the investment you'll have in that combo.

That would buy a lot of beer...unforutantely beer will not help you catch fish either, but, you will be able to enjoy not catching anything all that much more. grin.gif

You might want to look at the Shimano Crucial rods. I think they are a sleeper on the market. I bought one last year and love it. Was going to buy a rod 3 times as much but glad I didn't.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
