    Default favorite bluegill rod

    All:
    Thanks to all for your input. My father/I made a trip to the new BPS in Portage Indiana and purchased the G loomis sjr700. Now I only have to wait about 4-5 months until I can use it. The ice on the pond formed a couple of days ago. Good luck to all.

    Default one rod???

    I cant pick just one. I normally cast very small fixed floats (thill mini stealth) and a long rod can really help with distance and increased depth. Probably use a BNM samheaton 9'-10'. If Im just dropping down an 5' UL, Ive had really good sensativity from some fly rods. And then a while back I broke out an ice fishing rod berkley lightning in the wind and fished in the lee of the boat with very good luck. The BNM sam heaton 7" spinning is a very nice compromise of a rod for everything. ICE??? you probably need to make another trip to bps,lol. Ive been eyeballing a marmish rod for the heck of it. I also put a spring bobber on my light action ice rod.

    I got one you can have for free if you can catch the Bass that ran off with it. I didnt have any rod holders at the time so I just laid the rod down in the boat while setting up another rod with minnows and before I could grab it a darn Bass ripped it outta the boat.

    You won't find me laughing about that. I clean my rods with Reel Magic and it does make a difference. In fact, I probably should do it more often.

    I mostly fish for gills with my son or my brother in law and his kids, but I think telescopic rods (BnM Black Widow is my favorite) are great for using live bait, and the kids have a blast using them. It's great that the younger kids can fish without much adult help (that way you can fish a little too, instead of just babysitting :D ). If I'm using artificials, I just use a Shakespeare Excursion 5' ultralight rod with a Mitchell Avocet reel (entire setup costs $30.00 or so, and I've caught hundreds of fish on mine with no problems).

    My favorite is a 6' shimano clarus U.L. or a 5' quantum extra lite.

    Default favorite blue gill rod

    6.5 to 7 ' flyod ,nothing that cost more than 30 bucks. these low priced rods listed as 4/5 wt. will kill you if you put any line less than eight wt. on them. i find it takes the heavier lines to load these rods and make them cast well.
    as most of our fly fishing is done in timber ,we roll cast ,a typical rod setup is a 6 to seven foot rod with 9 to 10 WT.DT/F line with a hand tied tapered leader not longer than four ft. starting with 12lb. working down to a 6 to 4 lb tippet.
