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

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.

      if this is the lake I,m thinking about isn't the only access thru a farmers yard that owns a little meat processing plant??????

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      locke lake by hasty off 94 was 90% open tonight!!!!!!
    • eyeguy 54
      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.   
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
