In anticipation of spring break, I'm setting up some new ice fishing rods/reels for my 3 boys. I've always just scrapped something (cheap) together for them when they were young, but now that they're a little older, I'd like to get them something better.
I've already ordered some 27" ML rods from ebay and now I've got my attention turned to getting some reels.
I'm partial to baitcasting reels but see a lot of folks using spinning reels. What are you using...do you like it, what would you recommend? I'm looking for quality gear, but I'm not looking to spend money just for the sake of spending money.
Most of our ice fishing is in the stocked lakes of southcentral.
