I see you used the Gallery... did you have any trouble with it?

Thanks, more current reports to come, if we ever get ice. 

No trouble, the gallery was pretty easy, once I looked in the right place to find it.   :-[

To get this back on track, I have about a dozen rod/reels for summer fishing 6'-6" to 8 feet long; and a half dozen ice fishing rod/reels, 24" to 36"  plus some tip-ups.

You can never have enough stuff!

I don't think it is mine either Fishaholic but I am interested in learning a little bit about it. I know from reading some of your other posts that you fish mainly from the shore so when you go out how do you decide which rods to take with you?

About 30 or so years ago Cross froze about 12 or so inches and I drove a VW all the way around the Island in front of the public launch. ~sweat One guy had a full size truck half sunk about 100 yards out, I don't know how they got it out.

I am down to 4 or 5 that actually work. I have about 6 reels still on rods & 2 loose reels that all have one problem or another. It is about time to get at least a couple of them fixed!

No Rickey, Have you got to fish with yours yet? I will probably try it, I do use the Berkley Vanish on my jig rods. They fill your ree up with the Exel BPS brand I should save it for Cork ;D I know he uses it.
I only use the Bagley super silver thread for every thing else, great line :P

It does have the same qualities as big game , I had never used it till they put it on my reels. Only thing is it comes in 14 and 17 and big game does not. Just a thought.

I am currently starting to fish national trails, to break out into a pro career.  I currently own 19 rods and reels, but i only keep about 10 on my boat at a time, depending on the type of patterns i plan to fish as well as the type of lake i am going to.  I believe that each technique to be fully successful needs to have the perfect set up which includes the right rod as well as the right reel, it will make a huge difference.

Richard Cooper, you bring up a good point. There are so many different techniques to fishing out there, several can be performed well with the same set up. But I have found that if I take the time to match the rod and reel to the fishing technique and conditions, I do a lot better. I think it is because I am not fussing with my equipment as much and can concentrate on the actual bait more.

I feel that confidence is a huge factor in fishing, if you have confidence in your setup as well as your pattern, you will perform a lot better.  If you have a good set up that is custom set up by you to your specifications for that technique, believe me, you will catch more fish partly because you have confidence in what you are doing.
