  1. Thanks for the info!
  2. Thanks for the tips! I like to think outside the box to give myself more options.
  3. Thanks Sean, sounds like a good price.
  4. Thanks, I haven't checked out the talora rods but I've heard good reviews on them.
  5. Good to know.
  6. Maybe the reels back then required it, maybe not. Maybe today's reels don't require it, maybe they do. I know that our salt water rods, reels and tackle had to be sprayed with fresh water after each fishing trip. The salt could make the reels sticky.
  7. I've never heard about backing off the drags for long term storage, so thanks for that tip. I never have them set tight anyway, but I'll be extra sure from now on.
  8. Thanks for the info. I'm looking to have 4 to 6 dedicated walleye rods/reels by next year's opener. I figured I would try to buy 2 at a time if I had to buy new stuff. I have no problem buying used equipment that's been properly maintained and in good working condition, and for the right price of course. I have a feeling that most of you serious walleye fishermen take good care of your equipment
  9. Thanks! Come to think of it, I had a Magda 20 once and I quickly returned it and got a 30. Haven't had any issues with my Magda 30's and 45's. The clicker stopped working on the 20 the first or 2nd time using it.
  10. Outstanding!!!
  11. Thanks for the replies FleetTracker and John! Fleet Track, do you have your Trophy in the water yet? Matt said you were doing some remodelling on it.
  12. I didn't think towing it down the raod would be a problem, it was launching and pulling it back up the boat ramp. I guess it would depend on the boat ramp itself. But, you really only do it once a year, and if a van can do it... Lol
  13. I have a 2008 Tundra and it tows as good as my 3/4 ton Dodge did, and it tows smoother than my Dodge. My Toyota is unmodified, and I hardly notice my 21ft Trophy behind the truck. Thanks for the reply!
  14. Jim, you might need a bigger truck. Has anyone tried to tow one of these 2860's with a half ton truck?
  15. Wow, very nice brown!
