Ha, know the feeling. Last month my wife intercepted the mailman delivering a reel and I walked out to hear him saying "you shoulda seen that big fishing rod I delivered here yesterday". I gave him the oops sign behind her and he said "or maybe that was another house"... she smiled and said "no, it was here".leggomye990 wrote:Well there goes my idea for a jig rod... yesterday I was on Plat and I did something that my wife would probably leave me for if she finds out LOL.
Hopfully I can get to the mail before she does...

Having said that I am going to learn to use Ned Rigs and Drop Shots this year. Plus I will be using some of those jigs and Senkos that have been sitting in my tackle boxes...at a lake I like to fish. Pressure is heavy and I fish from shore. I have to do something that 10,000 others aren't. I will be using 2 spinning rods and at least 2 (or 4) baitcast rods for the former. I have 4-5 casting rods I want to try for the latter to see which seems the most sensitive to me. Three of my rods were recently purchased just for these techniques as was one spinning reel.
I picked up an Addermine and a Steez 7'6 AGS over the past few weeks. We still have ice on the lakes so I haven't had a chance to try out the Addermine yet. Whichever one works better with a Ned rig will most likely be the second most used rod I own.

I really like the way the rod handles, and I use it as my all-around spinning rod.
