Am i better with an Ugly Stick?

I know that is what they hit Dead head with when he was born -- Just kidding, my Brother.

No -- would the Ugly Stick be a good option for running Raps??

I have a couple of them-- they're Ok for trolling cranks. I also use them for deadsticking northerns with a Baitrunner reel.

Last year one broke-- I called Cabelas and they looked to see that I had bought one 2 yrs before and then sent me a new one. They didn't even want to see the that the old one was really broken.

They're a little hefty, but less so than the fiberglass Ugly Stick I think.

ha ha everyone's a comedian...

what's the point in buying a new rod anyway, if you can't catch any walleyes over 10"?

I don't care who are, now that's funny right there laugh.giftongue.gif

I laughed out loud when I read Hit's post on Dead's plight with the ugly stick. Fun for the whole family is what I say laugh.gif. Whoopin stick, ugly stick, they both are heavy and have NO feel to them. Just spend $50 bucks and find a 7-8 ft rod for trolling, with a soft tip and moderate action. At least with graphite you can feel if the rap is weeded up or not running correct. Just make sure you don't get hit by the "ugly stick" while your back is turned tongue.gif.

Hey, I just realized I hit 1000 posts, it only took 5 years shocked.gif

BTW -- did you get into a new office over by LM Fleet? Drove by the other day and thought I saw it.

Sure did, right on Hwy 59. If any of you drive by and see a maroon GMC with a topper parked out front, stop in and say hello. If you're heading to LM Fleet, you can always buy me a few lures if you'd like laugh.gif.

As long as you're visiting Mr Dog, we moved and I now work between L&M and Fisherdog. This way, if he's sneaking out and not reporting, I can rat on him (unless I get to go along!). And I like L&M's lures too if you're giving them away.

a LOT of people come in to pick them up as river rods. At work I always joke around w/ our customers and tell the custemers you could beat someone to death with one, but dont do it, we dont want a lawsuit. I have a buddy whos got one and he uses it all the time. (Contact Us Please) near impossible to break. I have not ever seen one broken.

Much the same as an Ugly Stick in my experience. I don't use them when there are weeds, etc around (prefer graphite so I can easily tell when a lure is fouled), but I do have a couple 8.5-9'ers that I run as outside rods when I'm flatlining to keep them away from the boat a ways.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
    • jigging-matt
      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.
