Not going to lie - I do not like baitcasters.  I can use them and I have tried a couple, but I won't buy one.

That being said - you can pick up a Lew's Speed Spool for under $100 from Dicks.  They are light and have a pretty fast retrieve.  I liked the one I tried out, but as with all baitcasters I eventually smacked my lure into the water 5 feet in front of me and was instantly reminded of why I don't use them consistently unless I am going to be trolling...  I can take off line and re-spool a spinning reel faster and with less frustration than I can deal with a bird's nest...

Hey all.  I have been fiddling around with a couple of casting reels on my bigger game rods and have come to really like them.  I have always been a spinning reel guy and likely still will for most species.  All that said, I am looking for a good baitcaster for a 7ft walleye/bass rod.  Knowing nothing about it I was hoping someone on here might have some opinions so I know where to start when I go shopping.  Hoping to go under $100. I have some new 8lb floro I have been wanting to try so that will go on it.  Throwing small jigs and the occasional crank but nothing real heavy.

Congratulations on your personal best! I have Wednesday 8/23 off from work and hope to hit the Red Cedar. Questions: Do you have any interest/availability on fishing w/me that day? Does time of day matter on that river? BTW, when on vacation in the U.P. last week, I got spinners that were as close a match to what you're using as I could find.

I finally got my new personal best  pike at 38 inches... Didn't realize at the time because I didn't have a tape mesure but it was from the butt to the first eyelet of my walleye rod... Wich is apparently 38 inches. Wish I would have got a better picture...

I've been doing fine on bass.  There are also plenty of sucker to be had.  Water is still super low.  We had a good rain yesterday but it didn't help other than to muddy up the low water.  Eventually some fresh fish will come.  Still plenty of Steel in Prairie Creek.  I saw 6 on Saturday.

Been catching a few cats in Lansing mostly at tecumseh park but most are just a couple pounds.

Bluegills have been hitting pretty good in the slow water but they seem to be really tight to cover. 

I will second that the river is low...

Spent a couple hours at night the last 2 days on the grand in Lyons.  Bite was slower than I would have hoped but there are certainly bass and cats around.  Landed a few but nothing of note.  Also managed to find 1 small walleye.  Water level is really low.  I guess it's back to the trout stream until we get some rain and cooler weather to push in some fresh fish.
