Jesse-

If you go to the Mille Lacs forum, and then look at the "for sale" subject, you will see a nice G Loomis combo there. Sounds like a solid combo to me for $160

shimano citca/ any decent rod- on got a citca on a berkley lightnigrod 7' mh 10-25 and ive caught muskies, with no problems. I spooled it with 20 lb pp, and its been solid. 150-160

no loomis/croix but works for me- I use it for bass/ catfish, mostly a live bait rod(large shinners-small suckers)

Hey I happen to have a rod and reel I can sell you. The reel is a New Shimano Curado 200 DSHV and it has a New Shimano 6'6" MH Convergence casting rod. This came as a combo. I bought several for a work outing and had one remaining. I was going to keep it but I have more than enough rods and reels.

The rod still has tags on it. I spooled the reel with 12 lb Maxima Ultra Green line last Saturday night with hopes to use it on one of my exisitng rods but never did.

The rod retails for $50 and the reel for $229.

Here is a review of the reel, http://www.tackletour.com/reviewshimanocurado200dhsv.html

The rod got a 4.6 out of 5 stars on Cabelas.

I am willing to sell it to you for $189.

I am in the Minneapolis St Paul metro area.

Let me know I am itching to use it and need a reason not to.

Another vote for the shimano citica. As for rods, the shimano compre series and cabelas tourney trail rods are great and very reasonably priced.

I got a Citica for my first baitcaster and I'm nothing but happy with it.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
