I'm casting for walleye at Edgewater last night. I always take two rods. I have my St. Croix Avid series with a Shimano Stradic reel on it sitting behind me, and I'm down on the rocks. I cast and accidently snagged my rod, and it goes flying into the water. I start to freak out and use every swear word in the book. Fortunately, my lure stayed snagged to it, and I reeled it in. Man, was that a close call!!
