Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Has any one used any of these Combos and if so what is your impression?

 

Spinning is common with junk spinning reels, particularly when paired with over-weighted or ancient, coiled fishing line. Smooth turning reels like those on Frabill's Bro Series Combos don't have a Twizzler effect on the line. But if Bro really wants his jig balanced on a tightrope, he employs the Straightlining technique, which requires specialized equipment. Frabill's Straight Line Combo takes up line like rolled carpet on its fly-fishing-styled reel. Likewise, the line lets loose like a pulley, no twists or turns. Easy on, easy off.

I 've been wanting to try this type of ice fishing reel.Maybe next year .This year I got out on the ice once! The warmest winter I recall in my 58 years.

 I think Patrick 'Bullworm' Olsen used these this year.Look him up on this site .Great fisherman! http://bigbluegill.com/profile/Bullworm?xg_source=profiles_memberList

 

By the way - pro anglers use no reel at all. The reel is just a spool to store line.

They handline the fish after hooking it. If you reel up and down, you lose time and your depth - so it is much faster pulling up by hand (but our "Pro" company reps need to sell reels) - so they show and produce, sell reels.

are there any videos of this? i would like to see this
