i would go to you dad and tell him "look you are spending $XXX.xx on this fishing gear but i have changed my mind a little and for the same money i can get a lot more stuff and become a better fisherman"

you said you wouldn't be able to aford a boat? if your dad agrees to what i wrote and you buy a st. croix priemer rod and a quantum energy PTi reel you will have a great setup for right around $200. now lets see if you get the stella that is $500 right there plus $300 for the rod so that puts you up to $800. so if my math is correct you save $600. now look at the boats posted earlier, a tracker 10x32 is $400. buy that and you are still $200 less then the rod/reel you wanted. or if that boat is a little to small for you, get the tracker topper 14x36 for $600. in case you didn't know you can't beat a small jon boat on ponds and they do good on small lakes too.

like i said their are lots of options if you want to here what we think you should start the new thread asking what should i get?

for lines i like suffix for mono and i really like the owner hooks

you might have a point... but is the boat seriously that important? i can reac almost all parts of the pond i fish with, probably will be able to nail every spot witha st.croix tournament rod and a stella... never seena boat on the pond. ill try to find a pic of the pond. cuz i really dont want to give up the stella and tourney rod, they seem so amazing

no you don't need a boat, like someone else said i think you would catch a lot more fish. i told you how i feel and what i would do but at the end of the day it's your decision

why would you get professional rated gear and tourney rods if you dont even fish tourney or have a boat to fish tourneys out of and yes boats are that important

Abu is good, but nothing compared to a Shimano reel. They are quality. Then Quantum.

Seriously though Cranky, I'd hold off on a boat til you were old enough to drive the truck that's pulling it. And with being a doctor in the next decade, I don't think you have to worry about your dad buying you a boat.

ioneccess- thats my point, i dont think i need a boat so i may as well go for really good gear. wouldnt know how to move it anyways... we have a lexus car and a nissan minivan. and kicker, once again, money isnt the amtter. people say shimano is best, and stella is the best shimano so im guessing its the best reel
