After years of fishing for eyes and perch on Erie, Ive become shore bound and have fallen in love with gill fishing. I was at gander looking at reals when I put my hand on a St Crois Ultra light. My Gear is in the trunk of my car so the olgical choice would be the split pole. My question is is the solid 6'6" any better than the split 6'6"? And no I can only buy one or get killed. seriously would like your help.
