Question For Rod Experts

Question

Today I received a Mr. Walleye Series rod that I ordered. The catalog states that it's an IM7 Graphite. The rod says Spiral Halix Carbon Fiber. It seems to be a nice rod for client use but is this a graphite? Thanks

Which series did you get? They make the Mr. Walleye series and the Mr. Walleye Superpro.

The Superpro has the Spiral Helix Carbon Fiber

The other has 100% Graphite

And yes, Carbon fiber is a polymer which is a form of graphite. Graphite is a form of pure carbon. In graphite the carbon atoms are arranged into big sheets. The sheets look like chicken wire.

Carbon fiber is aranged into strands. They look like ribbons of graphite. Bunches of these ribbons like to pack together to form fibers, hence the name carbon fiber.

I got the SuperPro. They retail for $129. I got it for $77. It sounds like what your saying is that I got my moneys worth. Right?

      End of April is my guess for lakes along the I90 corridor.

      Great.  Have to swing by soon to see what they have, then over to Petti Bros for some jerky and sticks!

      Great news. They opened last Wednesday. Sounds like it’s about twice as big. Looking forward to checking it out soon.

      It was dismissed before court via email correction from enforcement officer Robert Gorecki.

      Last weekend I was monitoring a bay on Tonka whether people were still driving out. I saw 6-7 vehicles. In one spot there were 4 trucks with 3 wheel houses. One of the houses was 20 ft+. On Sunday I arrived to see the sheriff put up a thin ice sign that 6 vehicles had driven past.   I returned to fish it last Wednesday late afternoon with 4 vehicles already out. Drove to the spot I fished 2 other times in the last month and drilled the first hole. LiveScope showed the fish 30-50 feet away. Drilled a cluster of 5 holes in that spot and game on. It was almost as fast as you could put your line down. A lot of up bites. After it slowed down on the small jigging spoon, I switched to a 4mm tungsten jig and caught more. The fish shifted 10 feet away once where one of the other holes was and then went back to the initial hole. For crappie, I ended up with a 13, a couple 12s, couple 11s, three 10s and a handful of 9s. Also 4 bluegill either side of 8” plus several smaller of both species. All fish were released. The pictures I posted are the 13 with me, both 12s an 11 and a dink. I measured them on a Li’l Dipper which is accurate from the middle of the hole at the top of the handle. I am going to order a Ketch board. The rod for the tungsten jig is a Tickle Stick and for the spoon a Panfish Sweetheart.   All three times I’ve fish this spot the big fish move out about 60-90 minutes before dark. I suppose they are moving to a different area (weedline?) to feed. If I get out to this spot again this year I’ll try and figure out where. When I drove off the bay there were still 6 other vehicles out.

      Yup. Bullseye on the Ricochet . Bit o simple St Pats humor as that’s how I live n guess this flows thru my fingers.   Always interesting to see how close guesses are here.   where my island is clears out before the bay n large sections of lake so that is fun also. In past a few times last 28 years I hit it right on. Silly icy fun Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T
