Taught the kids to use spinning gear this past weekend. They graduated from their spincast setups and were really excited.

I went to Wally World and got them some cheap $10 Zebco setups... boy was that a mistake. They had a blast fishing Saturday night but I spent most the time dealing with equipment issues due to the cheap poles. Mainly it was the pre-spooled crappy fishing line but it got me thinking of returning the setups and getting them something a little better constructed.

Might be worth a stop by Eagle claw off the 70. I've never been but maybe they would have some good deals.

The kids were doing fine with 5'6" poles.

Considering there is four of them do you guys have any good experiences with combos around $20?

Thank you!

I let the kids practice on my spinning rod with Power Pro to discover the biggest air knot I had ever seen!

I don't think they're ready for braid. Heck I just figured out how to fish with braid without getting air knots every trip.
