A Big thank you to everyone on the forum. I am feeling right at home. I will have alot of questions coming I am sure. I know my b/f has alot of patience for me since he is the experienced one and I can honestly say that I must get on alot of his nerves in the water. So having a third party to come to with my questions, some I am sure are silly, will help me so much. I have been using a beginners rod since August. He says I am now ready to upsgrade. Any suggestions on the type of rod I should and what to look for at Bass Pro?
