Default Anyone have this setup?

Iím usually a trolling guy for walleye. But I do have your standard pflueger president 6í6 medium for jigging purposes. I came across a deal I couldnít pass up ( less than 1/2 price) but itís probably more suited for casting cranks than jigging. Wondering if anyone has this setup or any insight on its best application. Itís a St Croix 7ft medium 1pc split grip with a Diawa exceler lt2500 with 10lb suffix 832. Thanks

Very versatile for casting any baits between 1/4 and 1 oz in my opinion. Try out some new stuff and enjoy the combo.

Use it to troll, use it to jig, use it to bobber fish, use it to pan fish, use it to pan fish, use it to musky fish, use it for northern fishing, use it for walleye fishing. Use it for retrieving lost glasses from the bottom. Use it to hold your hat on in a wind storm. Use it to hold up a sagging window. Use it to hold a door open just before it is crushed from the wind.

You can use your rig in a million different ways.

But best of all, any time you use it for its intended purpose you will have a smile on your face because you will be enjoying yourself.

Be safe

My thoughts exactly....really, a typical REW post, when someone asks a simple question...hoping for a real helpful response...many times, comes across like he is smarter than everyone!

Hookem, I don't have that exact rod, but as kzoo mentioned, that should be a very versatile combo...experiment with any techniques and you'll get a feel for what it works best for...it won't be perfect for every technique, but it will be very good for many techniques....jigging, rigging, swimbaits, jerkbaits.......and more! If I only had one rod....that would be the length, power and action I'd get....versatile....if the reel is in good shape, you should be happy!

A lot nicer than my setups so why not. I think of what my dad and great uncle used up North back in the 50s so I think you are in good shape. So much has to do with Marketing $$$ and paid advertisements / sponsors that supposedly gives us the competitive advantage (same as in deer hunting with all the Magic deer scents).

So basically i was just asking if anyone had this set up and liked it better for a Particular application as in yes it’s great for jigging blades/bucktails deep or shallow or its better suited for casting cranks/spinners through the weeds, bottom bouncing etc... I know it’s a versatile rig and will do all of the above. I’m sure with some experimenting of my own I’ll find out what I like it best for, just trying to rule anything out with some feedback that’s all. Thank you for the reply.

Iíve got that rod in ml. Yours should perform well with cranks, blades and aggressive jigs from 3/8 up. I think the action is a little fast for slower presentations but should be great for any oof the above.
