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!

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.

    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
