St croix premier series comes in a combo. I believe there 35.00 for rod and reel. I have a few and haven't had the guides freeze up. They're pretty large. I do fish in a portable though. The only thing I dislike is the reel is a little big for my liking. You can also buy just the rod for 15.00 i think and pair it with a reel of your choice.

Jason Mitchell Series rods are great, the combo real that you can buy them with is okay but I bought the Rods and then put some Tica reels on them and i like them alot!

I'll second the tica reels. a little more spendy but i feel there worth it. I think its HT, but I'm not sure, They have a reel designed for ice fishing with a cold temp lube in the gearing. In the ice fishing forum a while back there was a thread about ice reels that was pretty long. I'm sure theres plenty of suggestions on there for ya to cold blood. Good luck in your search

You might be heard pressed to find something as good as Jason Mitchell's and in that price range that is afforadable for most. Jason also has a great line up of combos with a decent reel for the money.

Jason's perch rod is good for crappies and eyes. One might also check out the Meatstick. With a very soft tip, one can detect the slightest bite and the rod has good backbone to fight the bigger ones also. A great rod indeed.

Check them out here.

I have the JM spring bobber rod with a Plueger reel and love it, the spring bobber takes off most of the water so the guides dont ice up as much. A little ice gets on the spring bobber eye but it pops right off. I have a JM perch rod with a gander reel and love it also, it doesnt seem to ice up much.

I would have to give a thumbs up to the Jason Mitchell rods as well. I bought a few before seaon, and now orderd a few more. I have let my wife and kids use them, so now I had to buy them each one. They are great rods for the money. You wont be dissapointed!

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      Sandberg 780-7153, Ratai 780-1124, Bodri 780-6761,  I did my own with standing seam metal from Menards. Really easy to do

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out?

      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
