Limit Creek rod question

9 posts in this topic

I've been thinking about getting a couple of Limit Creek casting rods (LCC66MHF) for walleye trolling. Anyone use these and what about planer boards with them? Do they have enough back bone for something like that?

Thanks in advance!!!

I would go longer. I like 7'6" to 8'6" rods for boards and have gone mostly to telescoping rods for storage purposes. Gander Mountain has a nice board rod for a good price and a over the counter return policy.

Im sure limit creek has some longer trolling rods. Ill check them out.

I have two and love them. Use them for trolling all the time. One has a line counter with Leadcore on it and the other a line counter with power pro. Quite simply a great rod for trolling. I don't use planer's but I'm sure they would work out great. Turk is a great guide and heck of a guy. Just another reason I llike to buy is rods, but you are getting a great quality rod at the same time. The only long rod they make is a medium light, don't know if that would work or not for planer but that is a great rod as well and the next one I'm adding to my assortment. I also have a smoothie and love that rod.

Thanks Northlander and Sandmannd and as for a longer rod, that'll have to wait. (At least that's what my wife says and she's in charge of the money.) From what I've heard, these are pretty nice rods and the price is right too.

If you want a longer rod for trolling, there are many much cheaper options, great sensetivity is not a necessity, when using superlines you can still see the rod tip vibrate, and when the rod bends over, you have a fish...

I just purchased a 8' Mr. Walleye Trolling rod and a Daiwa line counter for under $100...

Limit Creek does have an 8ft 6" telescoping rod that is perfect for rigging - I use it all the time. I don't pull boards though. Go to Turk's HSOforum and ask him for his suggestions via email. He's a great guy.

Yep, that's gonna be my next one. Been with Walli1 when he uses it and it's a great rod.

These are spinning rods though right? I think they would be light for pulling boards and I dont like spinning reals for trolling boards.

Yes it's a spinning and no I don't think it would be good for pulling boards.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
