    Yes, I absolutely love my St.Croix “trout series” rod too. It’s only a 7 footer but has ten eyes. I landed a 28# pounder on it!!

    Something bit at 10:30 and 10:45pm! It snapped 30# line at the sinker cause I wasn’t using a leader. No excuses!! Now, With my CatfishPro.com rod I have Berkley 60# test and four Berkley 100# leaders and nothing should be able to break it!!!
