So what would you rather have?

I agree a reel, but instead of going all out on a reel, you can get a nice pole and reel. I dont know how much you were thinking, but for $125-$150 you can get a nice pole and reel!

Depends.... Fishing slop id get a cheap solid rod and nice reel. For drop shotting I would prefer a more expensive rod for feel and and a cheaper reel.

I like to have nice stuff. So If I get an expencive rod, I still have a nice reel to put on it and vise versa.

Rod for finess fishing or jig fishing. Reel for everything else. If you buy a reconfig'ed combo you can a pretty nice Rod & reel setup for close to what it would cost for buying an expensive/cheap combo seperately.

I would also check out Limit Creek Rods as they are great rods and a lower price. The money you save getting these great quality rods you can put a nice reel on them and have a great setup.

Rod. It's got to telegraph all that information to you about what's happening on the working end of the line.

I think Rod. But there are definately cases where the reel is far more important. Muskie fishing for example I will take a good reel over a good rod any day.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?  
    • sheez reb................i hadda clean all your slobber off the inside my screen when i opened this thread!!!!!!!!!!
