Best Rod for the situation

3 posts in this topic

I'm afraid there's a different answer for each of the species/techniques you mentioned. Also, there's individual differences in preferences for each situation so that even two professionals can't agree a good portion of the time.

However, I can give you a good suggestion- give my dad an e-mail or call. He makes custom-made rods and they are top notch. They will be of equal or better quality than you can find in a store and will almost always cost less- He doesn't make 100% profit like the big name rod makers do. I have yet to hear a bad word said about any of the rods he makes.
Phone number is (218) 891-4415
e-mail- rodsbyengel@netscape.net
Give him a hollar- you'll end up spending less money, having a better quality product, and having things like your name and a decal with the species of fish you like (among many other things) on your personalized rod.
Good luck,
Scoot

So what is everyone's opinions on what rod ( length and action) is best under each situation:

Walleye
Jigging
Trolling/drifting
cranks
slip bobber

Panfish
Jigging
Trolling/drifting
slip bobber

Large/Smallmouth Bass
Worms
Spinner baits/Buzz Baits

Northern/Muskie

Catfish
Channel
Flathead

Thanks in advance, I plan on making a trip to purchase a bunch of rods, so your advice will be helpful.

Nobody has any opinions on what type of rod is best suited for each of the above situations? I realize that it might be a different rod for each situation, and I expect this,..I want to see what every one thinks,..take some time and give your opinions on the subject.

    • https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658334/spicer   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.   https://www.apnews.com/5d9107864dca4089a5e23da56fd863e2/Officials:-Trump-adviser-asked-FBI-to-dispute-Russia-reports?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP_Politics
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
