Putting all the gear together for this weekend on Lake St Helen here in Michigan. Its prep time, tested the electronics on the Bearcat, new auger mounts from Koplin and since the partner doesn't have a quad or sled, will be pulling the Large Nordic Sled from Clam with all the gear inside. Tightened everything up on the augers and now its all about matching up the rods to the jigs.
Some jigs perform better on different rods due to their weight, and if I am using plastics or live bait. Some rods are dedicated to tightlining, which I will probably use more with the plastics to impart the tip action down to the presentation. With the smallest of jigs, will be using the rods that incorporated the light palm rod style spring bobbers. For the 3 and 4 mm jigs, those will go with the more traditional wire springs.
