Walleye can still get barotrauma when caught in shallower water if they just came up from greater depths. Walleye are physoclistous, meaning they do not have a connection from their swim bladder to...

Only time I am really running tungsten is for my bullet sinkers when live bait rigging. I like the feedback the tungsten gives compared to lead.

Other than that I don't really see much of a...

Only rods from St. Croix that are fully made in the USA are legend elites and legend extremes. As far as I am aware, all other models are assembled in the plant in Mexico. That may not be 100%...

The "lighter weight" claim didn't make sense to me either. They are built on the exact same SCII blank as before, with the only change appearing to be in the handles. Maybe they added some weight to...

Funny because I love the "snap jig" rods from St. Croix. I think the blank is perfect for it, especially with 1/4oz plus plastic. Definitely a bit of a shame that their lower end rods don't balance...

I'm a shimano guy. Stradics have been my go to for years, and I'm loving my vanford 2500. The sustain is also a great choice. With that being said, I have absolutely nothing against Daiwa reels.

Others have already said it all. I highly recommend running 12-15lb flouro leaders if you plan on ripping blade baits/jigging raps/shiver minnows. You get way less fouling going on when your flouro...

I also find that braid works exceptionally well for slip floats. I've probably already caught 100+ walleyes corking with braid as my mainline this year. For reference, I used mono for bobbing all of...

I actually haven't used the WildEye Swim Shad yet Gerry. It is on my list of plastics to try, however. Seems like I might be missing out by not using these!!

Yeah you definitely don't want a medium light then. I'd go medium or even medium heavy. Also if you primarily vertical jig, a shorter rod is going to be much more enjoyable. I'd suggest a 6' or 6'3...

Boring hockey is what wins playoff series a lot of the time. Can't blame the Wild for playing the way they are against the Knights. They are doing exceptionally well. Game 7 here we come!
