What type of rod are you looking for?


6'9"-7' medium/xfast style that he can use for jigging raps/shivers. Pretty much everything he owns is a ML/fast or xfast because he's always been a lindy guy but he loves my aetos that's mh/xfast for jigging raps/shivers and he's going to start doing more of that.

This may sound stupid to you guys but why custom rods? Is it the personalization or something? I assume you have to buy the blanks from a mfg and simply add the guides yourselves so what's the reasoning? Again not criticizing just don't understand the reason for this.


In this case, I wouldn't be doing it for anything other than giving him something that's different and unique to what he can get in the store. He's more than happy with what he can buy in the store, but I know some guys in here do amazing work and I'd love to buy something that I know they put the time and effort into building because they love doing it.

Looking to have a custom rod built for my Dad. I know there are some guys in here that do them. Anybody have any recommendations for guys either in here or elsewhere? Thanks!

Also, at what speed do you notice a fall of in the regular transducer that comes with it? If the standard transducer works up to 20mph or so then I don't know how much use he'd get out of the high speed one because he'd be cruising spot to spot before slowing down to actually look for things more specifically.

Dad just bought a new boat and he's going with a Mega unit, but I've heard in the past you needed a high speed transducer to get optimal performance at speeds. For those of you that have it, do you notice a difference? I'm not talking about for SI/DI purposes, only when in 2D obviously. Thanks!

My favorite pike lakes all have a 24-36" protected slot and it's a noticeable difference compared to those that don't in the Detroit Lakes/Ottertail area in my opinion. I would've like to have seen a 1 over limit as well, but at least they're trying something to get the small ones out. There's never a simple answer to any of this stuff, no matter how badly we'd all like to think there is. I'll be frying up plenty of 18" pike this summer!

Thanks for the info Ducky! That'd be awesome, I might have to take you up on that if I have an off day that matches up!

Moving to the cities for work from ND. Grew up fishing the Detroit Lakes area but it would be nice to be able to find a shore spot on Pool 4 because I won't have a boat with me right away. Not asking for anybody's spot, just wondering if there are any areas with access to pool 4 for shore fishing until I can get a boat down there. Thanks!

Yeah, even last weekend we were breaking through the hard packed snow with the truck but it wasn't deep enough to get stuck. Probably just going to have to walk out unfortunately with the new snow. Thanks Thor!

Truck travel possible on any of the lakes that don't have plowed roads or paths driven on them to community spots? I'd like to get out, but I feel like the new snow might make it tough!
