Hello, just thought I would ask for a little advise/opinions. I have a 6' BassPro MicroLite Light action rod. I am trying to decide between the Shimano Symetry 750fb or the larger 1500. I will be useing it for pan fish. Any suggestions ?

Thanks

6' UL for panfish... 750 hands down. That is what I have on 2 UL's and 2 1500's on my 7' ML and 6'6" M fast. I would really suggest the 750, should work well for you.

Hey now.. easy with the use of the word "expert"... Glad I was able to help...

The 1500 holds 4-8lb test, with 170 yards of 4 lb and without the line weighs 9.5 oz... The 750 holds 2-6 yet still holds 120 yards of 4lb...and only weighs 6.9 oz, and then loose the weight of that extra 50 yards of line you would never need as well..

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
