Do you love big bluegill?
WHAT do ya fish for and with. Spinning , fly rods? TOOTY
nice!... tootie where do you get your materials?
I BUY up old solid glass bait casters and spinning rods. I then strip em of everything , sand and finish the old blanks and turn em into spinning rods . Almost indestructible for sure and great for shore fishing in tight places . I originally made em for kids and would give em away to kids who needed one but now I sell most of em to adults........
Thanks Carl I appreciate the kind words buddy......

GGGGGGGGEEZ CARL GONNA HAVE TO FIX YA A DRINK AT RENDEZVOUS THIS YEAR !!!!!!
hahahahaahhahahaahahha thats a deal tooty !!
last year was a fantastic learning experience for me. i was without my jon boat for most of the season and i used the kayak for my b'gill fishing at the local lake. when in the jon boat i love to take a widerange of reel, rod and line rigs depending on the type of fishing i will be doing. the kayak you learn to lighten your load and limit the rigs and tackle ya take fishing. through trial and error i ended up taking three setups
all rigged with 50 series reels and superlines.
a great personal favorite brand of rod for me is the diawa spinmatic or the okuma Celilo UL
these rigs handled dozens of SMB and Pike up to 30" .... its all i fish with now.
this is all based on personal preference at times i love fishing with the long rods too but by the end of the day im back on the 5-5' UL
members of BBG post rigs and setups on this group PATTERN-RIGGING-PRESENTATION for Bluegill

I just got 2 New rods. An 8' 6" Okuma Celilo UL on Amazon for $33. And a 6' 6" microlight series bass pro label rod for 39.99. Both are excellent rods... the bass pro label microlights are from 5' up to 9' in 6" increments.
