Before heading to work this morning I threw my new 7ft G-loomis Ultra-Lite in the car with a few Kasties. I hit up the local slimmer pit that had about half the ice melted. Made about a dozen cast caught 3 little snot rockets. I have to say, never owning a quality ultra-lite before, this G-Loomis is the ****! Made catching these little guys pretty exciting!
