    For creek trout, flipping salted minnows and garden worms or a Mepps Aglia google a Zebco 44 Put that on 6 foot spinning rod and you have my favorite backwoods trout rig.

    A coworker friend of mine handed me a zebco RT series that was collecting dust in his garage. Little big but I think itll do for a couple months til the stores get some stock I can look at. In the meantime I am gonna browse for some vintage reels.

    "Fishing Talk" How to restore a Zebco 33. A neat little read, tells how to ID, Age and fix up these neat little reels

    I have a bunch of the small presidents on all my ice rods if you wanna use one to see if it fits for him.

    I bought my 8 year old the Mike Iconelli spincast combo at Cabela's on a whim last year.
    He's used it for panfish in small gravel pit and bank fishing for perch and even jigging Saginaw river. Put 6# mono on it.
    Works good
    Decent drag to tighten or loosen.
    I even used it last fall when the river run was on.

    Just checked website. Dont see it listed
    But for $25, think was on sale, heck of a buy in my terms.

    Spincast, the one with the thumb button? I assume you have spinning, not spincast. I have a bunch of spinning on my ice rods as well.
