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.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
