The Ugly Stik Fishing Rod
The Ugly Stik fishing rod. Click here if you have no idea what I am talking about This thing is the golden standard for fishing rod and reels combo. You can find these bad boys for about $30-40 and they always are on sale. Highly recommend a trip to Meijer, Dicks Sporting Goods, or any other major retailer will have this bad boy on hand.
This is the fishing rod you can use for any fish under 15 lbs and even some fish in that 15-20 lb round. I have bought many of these on my own and they will last forever. Update the fishing line on it. Fishing line will cost $5-10 depending on how much you need and what test you buy.
This fishing rod passes the Papa Michigan test!
