Re: Rio In Touch VS standard

Re: St Croix Legend Elite 968-4

While they are called fast action, they are actually more medium fast. They have a fairly strong butt section and a softer tip. That's how they were designed. The St Croix Imperial is that way too. I...

Just a thought... I don't know how much power or how far the OP needs to travel. With a 14' jon boat, he is in a range where an electric motor "might" do the trick. With the new technology in...

Re: I barked like a dog

Great story and beautiful lake!

I've got a pretty deep voice. I'll be sure to practice my barking before my next trip into the wilderness. ;)

Re: 7'6" vs 8'6"

It depends! ;)

If there is a lot of overgrowth, a shorter rod, especially for a novice, can be a good thing. 200 feet across doesn't sound that small though, at least not to me. It sounds like you...
