Impulse Buying

Recommended Posts

papadarv



Did another impulse buy on favored rod/reel combo. Saw a great deal at WalMart $9.89 Celsius  rod South Bend 5.2:1 gear ratio bering drive reel adding to the 6 hanging in my non sleeper wheel house. Exciting buy. Cant wait to try it out on my walleye 4 day trip to Ottertail spending sleep time in my $35.00/night cabin. New rod purchase, rod rack and my sleep space in photos. Cost avoidance $23,949.00 Just does not get any better than this.

This pos weird bent for I don't know what reason walmart HT combo that I bought for 13 bucks has caught more walleyes than any of my thorne brother rods. I thought about retiring it but I feel its good luck.

We have one of those. We never catch walleyes on it because we live where the eye population is slim, but it works great for panfish after owning it a long time.

Have you figured out why it has a bend in it? my only thought was more room for your hand with a glove on.

Better line alignment from reel to eyelet reducing friction and line ware.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
    • Wakemup
      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
