how do the smaller smallies fight on ultra light tackle? im talkin 65 yds of 6 lb test, and a 4ft 6in super flexible ugly stik...i got one small one b4 but it was on my giant ugly stik when i was catfishing one day
I would think you should have a pretty good time on that. I was just up in Canada and caught some little ones on a ultra light drop shot rod with 6lb test on a little shimano stella reel and it was alot of fun. They are one of the stronger fighting freshwater fish out there IMO so should be fun for you.
My Mini Pinacle reel and some unknown telescoping rod I use with 4 lb line really brings in the blood rush when I catch gill or small bass. I definatly had a noticable differance just recently when that was the only outfit I had in my trunk one day.
Im gonna do it more often, it was a blast..!!
