Do you love big bluegill?
How much dead weight should a cane pole be able to pickup as a way testing it's strength? i'm making a whippy 9ft cane pole now and id like to stress test it a bit, but don't want to break it unnecessarily. It should be just right for bluegill but you never know what you might hook into. Thanks in advance for your ideas.
Pretty crafty Keith.......cool piece!
4# should work fine. I use 2# and have been lucky since last season I managed two incidental bass catches, Both fish were on the smaller side :)
