Default Consumer Cabela's Sheep Please!!!

I haven't visited the Walleye Central Board for some time and was surprised to see this type of response by other members towards another.

Someone posts a question, gets really no good answers about the product they inquired about, then gives feed back in response to a purchase they made followed by other members attacking them back. Pretty pathetic!

The member posts that he is frustrated with a retailers policy in regards to a return which seems reasonable. He takes the hit on the policy but vents his frustration, seems reasonable. His character is attacked because a friend gets him a deal through a friend. Wow!!

I thought this forum was for helping others out and asking questions.

I don't think Cabela's is losing money nor any other Big Box Sporting Company. The 2016 sale of the company brought 5.5 billion dollars to the 11 member Cabela's family. I don't think they lost money over the years on a company that was started for a dollar in 1961. Pretty good pay back on the dollar investment in fact.

The current shareholders' of the company received a 19% increase in their stock shares as of October 2016. Did any of you get a 19% increase in your salary last year? Most likely not!

I don't know much about high quality rods. The best one I have is a St Croix Avid.

But to comment on your worries about breaking the pole, wouldn't properly setting the drag eliminate the broken rod risk?

It could take longer to get the bigger fish in, but I think the Missouri state record cat fish was caught on Zebco spincast snoopy pole.

Best jigging rod I have found is 13 Fishing Envy Black. 6'3 ML, extra fast.

My goodness,
Take two or three rods with you.

They will fit nicely into a 3 inch pvc pipe with caps on each end. Don't transport the rods with reels on them.

Keep the reels in a bag that you can take with you in the boat. Then, use the rod or rods that you want for the application.

I suggest that you will have uses for each of the rods.

If you can carry one rod in, you can certainly carry in 3 rods in the came case. No extra bulk at all.

I normally carry in 10 rods in a 3 or 4 inch tube with no issue. Then, I use the rod that I need for the days activities. I will use the same or different reel on the same or on different rods.

You have great rods, use all of them. Right rod for the right job.

Be safe

Really no issue in landing 20 lb fish on light action rods. You can always point the rod straight toward the fish - don't bend the rod, and just use the reel and your elbow to bring any size fish to the net.

The lighter action rod will give you much better feel for light bites.

You have some great rods.

Use all of the great rods for the trips that you only go on once a year. It will make the trips even more enjoyable.

Be safe
