broken musky trolling rod

Recommended Posts

So,

 I broke my Lamiglas 8' trolling rod today while trying to land a pike. It was 8', one piece, 15 to 40 lb. It was fantastic for trolling for pike and musky. The don't make this model anymore (Lamiglas LX80HBC X11 )  so I'm looking for recommendations is anybody has any. I don't want to break the bank, Sportsman Warehouse had a similar lamiglas for about $110.00 but it was 9'  and 10-30 lb. Prefer an 8' rod.

Thanks

Was your drag set to tight ?  I use St. Croix rods. American made and worth every penny. Just my opion

My wife caught this 37.5" Musky , along with 3 other ones last Thursday on a very old St Croix rod. Some of my rods are 30 yrs old and never let me down.

Thanks Dan

Drag wasn't too tight, was trying to net and fish jumped. Was holding rod up with left hand and trying to use net with right. I ordered a St Croix from bass pro yesterday. Beautiful Musky, do you mind sharing the location?

Thanks for the reply!

Did your other rod brake in the same place ? Maybe were its in the rod holder. Sucks either way. The 47" fish , I caught a few weeks ago, actually turned my boat to the left on the hit. I have my drags set loose and the rod wasn't pumping , it was bent strait back, like I snagged the bottom. I have never broken a rod on a hit yet, even fishing the Niagra and St. Lawrance river's with lots of current. That's pretty crazy , you broke two rods. Time for a change in equipment, Best of luck.

Mine broke near tip. I replaced with a st Croix. Maybe your had some unseen damage. Never saw a rod break on handle end before.

Cheers
