Do yourself a favor....see the attached link. I am sure you can find them cheaper somewhere online.


1 battery lasts 75 crappies. It comes with two...the downside is that the extra blades are pricey...but its a nice knife.

I do wish they had the trigger on the back of the knife. It isn't super comfortable on your thumb after an hour of using it....but it is convenient.

Got out today for a bit. Caught a nice bass and 2 gills on the lake then wondered down to the stream that comes off the lake. Caught 8 more gills and a rock bass. But next cast I tossed to hard and hit the branch on the other side snagging my line tried to pull it a few times and then was going to cut it but on the second pull broke the tip ending my day. Head home and cut the pole down to the next loop filed it to make it smooth. Now I have a shorter pole lol.318953189631897

Well would have really sucked if you broke your pole and got skunked.

We had a great time on your charter on Lake Superior. I caught a nice 27 inch lake trout and we got 7 keepers. Limit was 15 total. I caught 3.5 fish one was to small to keep. The half a fish was the fish me and my brother were holding. He ate my brothers spoon and few minutes later one of the other line went off. As we reeled in lines seemed crossed so we got them uncrossed and finished reeling in to see the fish coming in with both our spoons in his mouth on opposite sides. Fish was great the first 4ish hours then it slowed down and the waves picked up a lot. Was a rough ride back in.

Also one of the days on my Upper Peninsula trip we hit a Lake near Baraga Mi and we all caught about 15 perch each from the dock. And my dad got his first ever walleye. We fished a few more lakes no luck.
Two days later we fished in Seney wildlife refuge and caught a few small blue gills.

The next day we hit up a top notch brook trout river that Hemingway wrote about. We worked our way to different access points by two track. After a few different stops we found a nice spot. I cast up stream using my spinner and caught a little 4.5 inch brook trout. Then about 5 mins later my dads line looped up in his reel so he released the line and pulled it out to get the loops out and reel it back in. Well in the process his jig fly went in the river and floated down to a pile of dead fall. Bam he got a bit and caught a nice 11 inch brook trout 32161
