Can some of you experienced fishermen (or women) comment on reasonably priced rods that you have used and liked? Is there a compelling reason to spend $120 on a rod versus $40?

Also, has anyone out there had any experience with rods branded by Northeastern Outfitters and sold by Dick's Sporting Goods?

Finally, where does everyone like to go to pick up their tackle? Big box shops, small stores? Where?

Thanks in advance for replies.

MOST (85%) of my tackle comes from L&M Supply here in Cloquet. I'll buy maybe 7 or 8 % at either a bait shop or Wally World.. or Gander Mt.

L&M took the whole season but finally got the Berkley Blade Dancer in stock.. I don't ice fish but the 'Blade Dancer' might be a good jigging winter lure. I hit some nice Pike early in the season with the red/white smallest size.

The most expensive rods I've had.. I managed to break by being careless (never spend more than $45 on a rod personally)... The rod I used the most this year I paid $5.00 for at Wally World.. a 6'6" medium rod.(cant' remember the brand etc offhand.. it's out in the garage).



Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!
