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.
