In Topic: Steelhead on 6-weight?

19 April 2017 - 07:14 AM

lol freaking atoadaso.

No one is saying it's impossible by any means, we're all just saying the original poster might be better off getting a heavier rod as a beginner steelheader. But i'm all for being frugal. In fact i'm one the cheapest guys you'll ever meet haha I just think if money is an issue, maybe one who hasnt felt the raw power of a steelhead yet would be better off with a heavier rod. If he breaks his 6 wt then not only does he not have a rod but then he still needs to buy another one. An 8 weight is one of the most useful rods you can have for freshwater and like DILLIGAF said, more than enough for steelhead.An echo ion rod paired with an echo ion reel will be more than ideal for the job and shouldnt cost any more than 300 all said and done.

I'm with swing4steel here, 6wt is plenty unless you are on bigger and faster water. 

I agree that a 6 might be enough for small water with room for the fish to run but what about in an area prone to snags? The original post said he would be fishing snaggy water and If a brute starts to take you into some deadfall, how will you turn it's head to prevent losing that fish to the oh so present trees all over spring creeks? Just an honest concern for the OP, that's all. Don't wanna hear of buddy losing his biggest fish because he couldn't keep it out of the cabbage.

In Topic: What is Your Favourite Lure for Crappie?

I don't target a whole lot of open water crappie but when i do, small minnows or zoom minnow imitations are a go to or any small fry imitation under an inch for those finicky fish, but when it come to hardwater, tiny plastics of assorted sizes and colours tipped with waxies for average ones and teardrop spoon and jigging rap for the slabs if im not running live minnows. I got no shame running live bait in the winter ahaha
