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.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
