BPS Walleye Angler Signature Series Spinning Rod

Recommended Posts

MarcumMan

Im looking to buy a new spinning rod for walleyes this season. I found the bass pro shops walleye angler signature series spinning rod and was wondering if anyone had any experience with one of these. I was looking at the 6' ML HM-85 Jigging rod. I would be mainly using this for vertical jigging and pitching jigs. I was also looking at a St. Croix Avid but with the price of the BPS rod, I could get a nice reel with it for around the same price of the St. Croix itself. Any comments? Thanks

The BPS trolling rods are great but I've never used one of their jigging rods so I can't really comment on that. Avids are one of my favorites though.

This series of rods is well worth the cost. The bottom bouncer rods are fantastic for the cost and the trolling rods have a great action to them with softer tips but still good back bone. The other rods that are good for the price is the Gary Roach rods. Reeds has them at a good price and plenty in stock.

      Early ice I am always targeting big crappies not numbers and I always start shallower in the weeds that are still green and I use bigger profile spoons tipped with a minnow head or even a large plastic monnow profile. I find that the larger crappies will  move in for a short while and be feeding on the remaining minnows until they head back out. I fish in that 6-9" area with great results very early ice.

      I'll be out second weekend in my traditional spot as well. Always see deer but I have yet to stick one. Hoping this is the year!

      Wow, impressive! I was out in northern MN over the weekend and, while working on stands, flushed six. No shots as all were roosted high in the trees thanks to the rain, but made for some excitement at least.

      I worked all last summer at camp lawn mowing. I’ll tell ya it was a lot of work but very rewarding. I love hands on work and like to get the job done. The one day it was to hot to mow so we jumped in the trucks and did a 60 mile loop down range. Let me tell ya there’s some nice deer out there this year. I’ve been around camp my whole life but yet to experience the full “experience” of camp. It was so cool. Ferrell would be a good bet for eyes or gills very small pretty lake indeed. Good luck to all who will be participating and we look forward to hearing your stories.

      What I’m starting to find out is there’s not a specific case as everyone has there own liking and what they want in a rod case. With that being said yes going to a ice show or like the thorn bros gathering will allow you to look any many different rigs and choose which would work best for you.

      The water temp had dropped to anywhere between 44 to 40, depending on where you were. Saw as low as 37 in Bystrom Bay. The temp we saw the most was 41.  It’s cold!
