        If you are from the east and/or access to a Gander Mountain they have rods specific to the fish. I have thier steelhead rod and use it for catfish king salmon carp walleye bass and use to use it for steelhead but use a fly rod now. Anyhow, it is around forty dollars and has a two year warranty. Hope this helps a little.

            You wont need to spend $100 on a decent rod. If you are like me you will be more than satisfied with a 6' medium action ugly stik lite from walmart. Its also sold else where if you don't patronize walmart. At Walmart it runs for about $40.

              I agree with beagleboy. I have been using UglyStik rods for a long time now and have never been let down. I even use the $30-$40 reels that are hanging right below the rods at my local WM and have no problems. Last year I hooked a large sturgeon below a local dam using my 6' medium US with a Trantula reel, #6 Stren and a #6 Eagle Claw hook. I had him on for about 10 minutes until the hook straightened out. Even though we can't keep 'em here, it would have been nice to get some pics.

                    I would go with a medium to medium heavy action ugly stick. They are not the most sensetive rods but they sure are durable. As far as reels go I have always been a fan of Quantums either a 30 or 40 series dependeing on what rod you buy.

                      Like Alex, I like the European zander rods. Also a fast action ugly stick is hard to beat.
                      Reel: I love the Quantum Energy PTI or the Daiwa Black Gold.

                        I use Ugly Stick med action for lake fish. If you want more sensitivity get the two piece. I get mine from Bass Pro for $30 and they have 7 year warranty.

                          Yeah, the two piece ugly stick is a great buy with a reel for about forty bucks- and a seven year warranty to boot.

                            Ugly stick is a good option for a nice rod only, but you can get a killer combo for under $100 also. Check out the Pflueger President/Cabela's Tourney Trail IM7 Spinning Combo. Pflueger is by far one of the highest quality reels on the market- perfect for walleye anglers, and Cabela's rods are very underrated.
