Am i better with an Ugly Stick?

I know that is what they hit Dead head with when he was born -- Just kidding, my Brother.

No -- would the Ugly Stick be a good option for running Raps??

I have a couple of them-- they're Ok for trolling cranks. I also use them for deadsticking northerns with a Baitrunner reel.

Last year one broke-- I called Cabelas and they looked to see that I had bought one 2 yrs before and then sent me a new one. They didn't even want to see the that the old one was really broken.

They're a little hefty, but less so than the fiberglass Ugly Stick I think.

ha ha everyone's a comedian...

what's the point in buying a new rod anyway, if you can't catch any walleyes over 10"?

I don't care who are, now that's funny right there laugh.giftongue.gif

I laughed out loud when I read Hit's post on Dead's plight with the ugly stick. Fun for the whole family is what I say laugh.gif. Whoopin stick, ugly stick, they both are heavy and have NO feel to them. Just spend $50 bucks and find a 7-8 ft rod for trolling, with a soft tip and moderate action. At least with graphite you can feel if the rap is weeded up or not running correct. Just make sure you don't get hit by the "ugly stick" while your back is turned tongue.gif.

Hey, I just realized I hit 1000 posts, it only took 5 years shocked.gif

F-Dog --

I am glad you had a good laugh.

BTW -- did you get into a new office over by LM Fleet? Drove by the other day and thought I saw it.

Sure did, right on Hwy 59. If any of you drive by and see a maroon GMC with a topper parked out front, stop in and say hello. If you're heading to LM Fleet, you can always buy me a few lures if you'd like laugh.gif.

As long as you're visiting Mr Dog, we moved and I now work between L&M and Fisherdog. This way, if he's sneaking out and not reporting, I can rat on him (unless I get to go along!). And I like L&M's lures too if you're giving them away.

a LOT of people come in to pick them up as river rods. At work I always joke around w/ our customers and tell the custemers you could beat someone to death with one, but dont do it, we dont want a lawsuit. I have a buddy whos got one and he uses it all the time. (Contact Us Please) near impossible to break. I have not ever seen one broken.

Much the same as an Ugly Stick in my experience. I don't use them when there are weeds, etc around (prefer graphite so I can easily tell when a lure is fouled), but I do have a couple 8.5-9'ers that I run as outside rods when I'm flatlining to keep them away from the boat a ways.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
