Catch More Walleye with the Right Rod this Summer

The summer fishing season is well under way, and it is the perfect time to consider upgrading to a new fishing rod before your next fishing trip. After all, when it comes to casting for and reeling in northern pike, walleye, yellow perch and whitefish like those found in Big Kaby, the right rod can make all the difference this summer fishing season.

There is no shortage of fishing rods on the market, with more being introduced each year. With all of the choices, it can be overwhelming trying to decide on one new rod to bring along on your next trip. That’s why Field & Stream recently took a look at 10 of the top new fishing rods for 2016.

Fishing RodWhen it comes to fishing for walleye, Cabela’s Prodigy Walleye and the St. Croix Legend Elite are two of the best new rods available for this fishing season, says Field & Stream. The Prodigy Walleye from Cabela’s is a well-reviewed walleye rod that is certain to be attractive to anglers who do not want to break the bank. With a retail price of $100, this is a rod that any serious angler would be thrilled to have in their fishing arsenal. This medium-action rod is strong enough to land a good-sized walleye, but still sensitive enough to be able to easily detect bites. The Prodigy Walleye features stainless guides, zirconium guide inserts and a handle made of composite cork and EVA.

The Legend Elite from St. Croix is sure to thrill anglers who are willing to spend a little more for an outstanding rod. The rod blank is made from SCVI and SCV graphite, and is fitted with titanium guide frames and ceramic rings. The Legend Elite provides outstanding casting and sensitivity, though premium performance also comes with a premium price tag: The retail price for the Legend Elite is $380.
