Multi-purpose rod

11 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a new medium action walleye rod that can be used for multiple presentations such as jigging and rigging along with slip bobbers. I would like to spend no more than $80. What do you guys think a good rod would be.

Thanks!

$80, is that for the rod only or rod and reel?

I like the Mr. Walleye series of rods, the 6'6" Medium or 7' ML would work well for all of those presentations, they are usually around $50.

For a rod I would go with Limit Creek Smoothie!

The cabelas tourney trail rods are fantastic and all are under $60. If I could have only one rod for eyes I would go with a 6'6" ML. You could use it for jigging, rigging, and bobber fishing.

I like the St. Croix mojo bass drop shot rod for multi purpose use. It is 6'8" ML-xfast action.

I have been reccomending the Limit Creek "Smoothie" to my friends. I just can't say enough good things about this rod. if you feel the ML isn't heavy enough for your applications you can look at the 6'6" med power spinning rod. It is also very sensitive.

The "Smoothie" is very versitile and does not break the bank.

I would go with either a Fenwick HMG or a Shimano Clarus. Both are great rods, but the Clarus has the better warranty.

Gander mtn has st croix rods 25% off. You could get a premier 6'6" or 7' medium light or medium rod for 75 bones.

I personally like the Cabela's Fish Eagle 2 rods. The 604 and 664 blanks have been good multi purpose rods - although the ML blanks might suit you even better. They have a life time guarantee, which I love.

    • LOL Then YOU my friend are the one who jumped to conclusions in your last post because that was a direct quote from the post you were replying to. You did say it was NOT a joke, right?
    • Finally saw a few divers myself today.  In town.    Yah, I don't think it would make much of a difference if they let us just keep going.  
    • Whoooaaa...slow down big fella. Of course I do not think one party is any more "evil" than the other.  I don't think ANY of them are evil, they just have, more or less, different basic principles. You my friend,  have some serious attitude problems and seem to be very prone to jumping to conclusions and letting your paranoid tendency's run away with you. I have many friends on both sides of the two MAJOR parties and have worked with a couple of genuine Libertarians too. I can only recall a couple individuals I would consider might be "evil" in your sense of the word. Shucks,   I don't even think YOU are evil.   Ha Ha HA!
    • Salami ready to eat. 1/2 goose.....1/2 beef. Much firmer than using pork.Love this seasoning. Garlic, smoke and peppercorns. I always add extra garlic to it. Lately I have gone to using powdered smoke. 1 tsp. per pound of meat. Gives me a consistent flavor every time. No guessing how much smoke to have. Also allows to use the oven inside instead of out in the cold.   Summer sausage in the oven now while I watch football.  
    • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             You might want to read what was actually typed:     Do you really believe your side is good and the other is evil? If you do, that's the part that is a big joke.
    • below is a link for doing pork loin jerky. you can use any whole meat for this.       click here :)
    • Nice conspiracy theory.  So how come after they tested additional thousands of deer they didn't find any more, if they were looking for an excuse?      What were you expecting as far as policing the borders?  How many folks would be necessary, and how on earth would they do it?   But whatever.  You sound just like those guys back in the day over by Madison Wisconsin that had big money in their deer hunting land and raising trophy bucks.  No way were they going to kill a bunch of their deer.    And look at it now.  30 percent infection levels.     It's like AIS.   They are doing what they can within the limits of budget, manpower, and politics.     Look at the map of cwd infested counties in Wisconsin... I posted it up above.   Do you want Minnesota to look like that?  Do you want to eat deer with CWD?
