BPS Walleye Angler Signature Series Spinning Rod

4 posts in this topic

Im looking to buy a new spinning rod for walleyes this season. I found the bass pro shops walleye angler signature series spinning rod and was wondering if anyone had any experience with one of these. I was looking at the 6' ML HM-85 Jigging rod. I would be mainly using this for vertical jigging and pitching jigs. I was also looking at a St. Croix Avid but with the price of the BPS rod, I could get a nice reel with it for around the same price of the St. Croix itself. Any comments? Thanks

The BPS trolling rods are great but I've never used one of their jigging rods so I can't really comment on that. Avids are one of my favorites though.

This series of rods is well worth the cost. The bottom bouncer rods are fantastic for the cost and the trolling rods have a great action to them with softer tips but still good back bone. The other rods that are good for the price is the Gary Roach rods. Reeds has them at a good price and plenty in stock.

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]
