Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

My current favorite, under 5lb fish, secret weapon rod, is a Browning Syntec, Dick Swann signature rod. Its 7ft long, IM6, extended foregrip. Kinda like a mini-noodle rod, which makes sense, because thats what Dick Swan specialized in. I believe its intended use is UL walleye finesse fishing. Here on the south shore of Erie, its all about trolling the lake with heavy tackle, so the rod was found in the sale bucket at Dick's, yrs ago. But, yesterday at Gander Mtn, saw a St Croix sc2, 7ft, UL...am still drooling, but price was 100 bucks... was one of the made in USA lines. Opinions ? steve b

Yeah, I have one of them , though mine is of the Quantum label. Its my favorite for throwing lures. Have one of the 4ft'ers too. Its solid ghraphite, rather than tubular. Nothings better for flipping bait up under hemlocks or mtn luarel, for brook trout in Penn hills. steve b
