Wow, that was fast. Didn't you just order it a couple days ago?

I like the wood reel seat and the way it contrasts with the chrome around it. Handle looks good and the color of the rod is nice too.

Cabela's will stand behind it too, and I'm sure you'll get hundreds of great fishing hours out of it. I love my Cabela's Genesis rod, and that's a step or two down from the one you just bought.

Only 67 days until April 1st!

Uh-oh...it's begun! I can see it already. Every year, or two you'll be buying a new rod and reel combo to fit a new purpose/species/fly size. \:\)

It's addictive. Just bought a new rod last fall, and still have two more on the wish list. crazy.gif

Congrats. Looks like a nice rig.

For what it's worth, one of the first rods I got was a Cabelas combo too, but not as nice as the one you got. I've put it through quite a bit, but it still keeps on casting.

My guess is they went too light on the Epoxy, so there was less point of contact.

I know you bought it online but I wonder if you can take it right up to Cabelas in Rogers this weekend and take care of it?

Rinc,

Didn't know you were a "fly guy", I'm very impressed! Are you going to try for a muskie on a fly this year? That would be too cool!

I think that would really be fun!

Once you get a little closer to trying it and have a heavier set-up, you should ask some questions of a guy from Oregon who posts on our Muskie/Pike board is PDXFisher. I'm sure he would be willing to help you out, then you can in turn teach me! I was thinking of the couple you caught from shore, how fun would that be on a fly.

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.
