    I use the ugly stick with Shimano spirex reels. I have 2 of them and they work great. The spirex has the quickfire trigger which is nice but i have had a bunch of instances this spring that i wish i had an antirevers reel. The spirex returns to vertical every time. It is the smoothest reel I have ever held.

    Go to BassPro or Cabela's online or check your local sporting goods store. They usually sell a spinning rod and reel combo in your price range. Shimano, Diawa, or even the store brand are fine to start with.

    THE THING IS IN MOST CASES A SIMPLE SPINCAST ROD & REEL WILL DO FOR JUST ABOUT ANY WALLEYE FISHING.BOTH MEDIUM DUTY. I'VE BEEN FISHING 30 SOME ODD YEARS AND HAVE NEVER SPENT MORE THAN $40.00 ON A COMBO ROD AND REEL. AND I HAVE CAUGHT JUST AS MANY OR MORE WALLEYES AS BUDDYS WITH $200.00 SET UPS.WHAT I WOULD SUGGEST IS BUYING TWO COMBOS ONE MEDIUM DUTY, AND ONE ULTRA LIGHT FOR DIFFERENT TYPES OF WALLEYE FISHING. WITH TWO DIFFERENT TEST LINES 6LB ON THE ULTRA LIGHT, AND 12LB ON THE MEDIUM.YOU CAN PICK UP AND RIG BOTH FOR UNDER $100.00.

    Go for an Ugly Stik, those things will last you for a life time and will not only provide you for a life long fishing rod but also you will be able to pass a rod like that down to your' grandchildren and such. Those rods are made to last.

    Gander Mountain Guide Series rods are also great for the price.

    a lot of guys are saying you don't need a very good rod, but if you plan on doing a lot of jigging for walleyes, you would be amazed at how much a better graphite, more sensitive rod helps. anyway, st. croix makes great rods and they have a new line out called "triumph" thats like 79 bucks or something.

    fenwick pro for walleyes medium-light gives you a nice feel for the soft bite. add a quantum spinning reel and youve got some smoothe fishing.

    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.

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

    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.

    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 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.
