What do you guys fish for? Or what do people around you fish for? What's your go-to rig?
I'm a Northern Canadian, most of the close lakes to me are trophy walleye and pike lakes, lots of yellow perch and various trout(brook, rainbow, lake).
I see a lot of guys around here with a lot of rods, I use a 7ft medium strength medium-light action spinning rod with 8lb test monofilament for everything from 20+lb pike to 1lb trout, I use a steel leader for pike and walleye, but for my entire lifetime this has been my go-to rig. I have other rods for down rigging and telescopics for travelling but I havn't found a single situation yet that I don't bring along and rely n my trusty spinning rod.
My rod and reel right now are quantum strike but I'm a big fan of the Mitchell 300 reel. Any rod that feels right is a good rod to me, I'm not particular with that. Anything 7ft medium strength and medium to medium lght action.
