Hey Dan, check out the sponsors page, there is a costom rod-maker there. Another I like is Midwest Rod & Reel. Good luck.

I would shoot Scotty a e-mail or give him a jingle. I have both his Ice and summer rods with no complaints. He will build you whatever you would like and give it that personal touch also.

Here's his link. http://scottyscustomrods.com/

Hi Dan, Check with the guys from Midwest Rod and Reel. There rods are exceptional. I think that their rods are some of the best I've had the chance to see. They are a great company to work with, very nice owners.

Check out Lakelady Rods. They are located in Breezy Point I believe. Very nice rods but not cheap.

I had one made a couple years ago by Rod Engel. Scoot, from this site, is Rod's son. It is by far the best rod I have ever used. I would highly recommend at least giving him a call and talking with him. He is a good guy and very easy to work with and can help you get set up with what you are looking for. He is up around the Crookston area and I believe he spends some time up on LOW.

I like the Hagen's out of SD, Check Ricks Taxidery and bait. He sponsors SW Minnesota in the MN regional pages.

Get a hold of Keith Terlinden at Professional Edge Custom Rods.

He builds on Diamondback, St Croix and others.

Great craftsmanship and a very resonable price. Great guy to deal with as well

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
