What Reel Works Best With My Rod

8 posts in this topic

I just bought a 24in light action St.Croix Legend rod and was wondering what reels people can recommend to go with it? Cabelas Fish Eagle UL looks ok, but what else?

Tiny20. I own about 6 of these reels and they are great! for heavier rods I usually prefer Daiwa, but for light action rods the Silstar Tiny 20 is hard to beat, and inexpensive.

Good Luck!

Tica Cetus GV500, wavespin dhxl or the shimano 500 series sedona.

I have the fish eagle UL on a few Cabela XML combo's - they work great. I believe they are Pfluger reels.

The cabelas fish eagle UL is one of the best reels you can get for ice fishing.

Shimano has some new reels out in the 500 size... I look forward to putting a few of those on my ice rods this winter.

Thanks Everyone! I have definately got some ideas now! The Tica reels look really nice. I am kind of leaning toward the tiny 20 becuase of its modest price, and it looks comparably nice. I'd be interseted in checking out the shimano ones too though! i wish i could buy everything actually.....

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
