I use the 29 inch medium light action Genz rod for perch. A great rod. Great sensitivity and a fast tip. Also has a strong backbone and can handle a walleye if one happens to swim by.

Good Fishin, Matt.

I've got a really nice ultralight rod from Mad Dog lures with a wooden handle and an extremely soft tip that tapers to a surprisingly stiff butt about half way down. I've never seen one that changes action so suddenly. Soft tip great for light bites, stiffer butt allows you to play larger fish with more authority than most ultralights.

I got it on clearance a few years ago at Home of Economy in Grand Forks, N.D. Not sure if Mad Dog still makes them. I still see their lures on shelves.

I like my Frabil Sensive's UL. They have good action but I have had a problem getting a good enough hookset on a walleye if one happens along. They just don't seem to have enough backbone to get the hook completely through their mouth.

I haven't used the HT ice blue ultra light, but I own a few of HT's Signature Series rods and I can tell you they have been the best rods for me. The model I have is the SS-27LM. The top 6 inches of the rod is super sensitive, for those light biters, but it also has a nice stiff back bone for solid hook sets. They may be tough to find in stores now but you can mail order them from 877 ice fish(web page). They carry all of HT's products.

The more I use the new St.Croix rods the more I like them. The UL is real soft tipped but I like the LT it has more backbone. Pricey though. $30. I believe Gander is clearing out their 1st ice series rods for $14. They would also be good for perch.

    • It the particular case of the poor integration of immigrants in Sweden and the EU in general, that information is publicly available and has been for some time, so probably isn't something the Intelligence folks are making a point of.   Likewise, the mainstream media doesn't seem to be making much of it.      On the other hand, we have the reports in the media that the Intelligence folks have allegedly stopped telling Trump stuff.   What are they allegedly not telling him?   Are they deliberately trying to make him fail?          
    • This has probably been beaten to death on here but....after the recent trip to Winnipeg and driving on rough ice all weekend, I'm reconsidering the auger mount on my ATV.  I have one of the Kolpin ones right now that is 2 thinner pieces of metal that stand up off the front rack.  The only way to hold the auger in is with bungees and the metal is thin and wears on the auger at the contact points.   I'm thinking I could work some 2x6's or something into a decent mount for fairly cheap.     Anybody have pics of a homemade one?   Or anybody recommend the Digger mount?  
    • So how did you get the livewell overflow out? We've had some problems with ours & have toyed with the idea of replacing it. We don't really want to tear all the floor up though. 
    •   Yeah., just not the same as Frankie. Try typing in all CAP'S!
    • Not last year but the year before that we had one that followed us all through deer season.  He would hop up on our knee while we were sitting there, and the little bastard would grab my glove and try to run off with it.  He was almost dinner many nights.
    • Saw this topic and the link to Rock Auto. I ordered up left and right headlight assembly's for my 04 Suburban. They fit right in and even included bulbs. $58.00 to the door delivered for the pair. Cannot beat the price and quality looks fine- better than the old dump I replaced.  Now do I replace the daytime running lens assembly's and fog lamps? Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday 2 days early.
    • They have the 20% off sale(some exclusions) going on this week at Gander. Just need the code from the page, though Rogers just uses one at the counter, so I didn't need it. They got more fishing stuff out now, so I loaded up on some Missle Destroyers!
    • I got the TYC Fog light installed last week. Worked good and looks better than the busted out one! I would of done it months ago if I knew it was that cheap and easy to do.
    •     Oh stop it. How was I to know? You'll just get Dell all fluffed up again and we'll turn THIS into another sillytown.
    • There are a few places to stay that are not too far from the lake.  Hamilton House in Winnipeg Beach is good, a lot of guys stay at the Casino on the East side,  there is a new hotel in Selkirk that is pretty nice and has lots of rooms and breakfast.     Nobody plows roads.  We always watch the weather and snow depth before we go.  We have been lucky to only have to bring ATVs with wheels up there.  Eventually we will have to deal with some deep snow though and bring sleds or tracks up.     There are a few guides that run around on the lake.  Lee Nolden and Blackwater Cats are the 2 I know of.  From what I hear they are pretty accomadating and have all the necessary gear.
