yepper, I really like them and them and the impulse mayflies. :)  Picked up a TUCR Inferno yesturday at scheels after trying ricks and I really like it. Spring bobber action and I can feel the bite sometimes. Mass produced in China so the price I could handle... LOL  took it out for a test run today and got 4 under 9.5 so I had to take pics of a couple. One had a nice humphead.Not quite as limp as the titanium springs on the cheap old gander rods so took a little bit to get the feel. Someday when I am rich and famous I might have to buy a really good rod. ;)  wind sucked so only stayed out about 3 hours.

Good ones. You  will  like the custom rod .Here a lot of good things about TUC.  Haven't personally got any TUC rods yet  but you know I have a few Thorne Bros rods in my arsenal :grin:  Minus the one I broke last week I showed you guys. Awfull spendy mistake :mad: Just remember there's no turning back now, Bet your other rods collect dust soon :grin:

Nice fish Royce.  I've had good luck on the wishbone too.  Hard to find the 3/4" in St Cloud but I have a good selection.  You finding the sunfish around the weeds or hanging in the basins yet?

Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good!;) Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

:omg: that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.;)

Tough to follow Ricks Gilly Gilly, but might as well get it out of the way.... My best one today, was a grind until prime time, then the bite was lights out until 6pm. I couldn't pull myself away from my hole....5a8a2fe1a31d6_02181814001.thumb.jpg.3ff9bad089b8e6c9c040d54c71c898b4.jpg

      If you can find a Gen 2 9" touch get it. I love mine.

      Charge your battery after every use. Your not getting enough charging when not running big motor enough. Other option is to move up a size in battery if room. I have ran Interstates for years with no issues.

      Today while running a spinner in Big Bay Walleye haunts. Released; would love to find more of these!

      Hi - this may not be the exact best spot for this, but

      1). I flyfish, elk and deer hunt out of my simple, clean off grid cabin 11 m S of Ennis.
      Excellent elk, muley, whitetail, and pronghorn opportunities, E slope of Gravelly range. 2 m N of current Wigwam fire - no problem.I have more time than hunting partners and need solid, easy going buddies to hunt with, and or will time share swap with others for access to great hunting.

      2) I have 230+ acres of outstanding pheasant, whitetail, waterfowl, and some turkey just E of Granite Falls MN. If you are local and have bear, deer, turkey, etc., opportunities, especially closer to the Metro, Let's Talk. This land is also for sale, I'm tightening up my footprint and want to build on my Bozeman lot on the Gallatin.

      I am very interested in:
      - whitetail tree stand, including doe management opportunities (especially local for me in zone 610 MN) - gotta fill the freezer!
      - spot and stalk anything anywhere
      - turkey
      - winter southern or warm weather opportunities, including fly fishing..pigs?

      Yeah geese and mallards were flying today

      I'll give the noise supressor a try Bob.  Both units were purchased at the same time.    yoppdk- I checked my unit and I don't see any such setting on the 998.  There is a low battery alarm setting, but that is already turned to off.

      This terminal could have been comprised, cracked or corroded to cause this.

      Geese are beginning to flock as I seen a number flying over the past couple days.
