    Well shes a spincast fishergirl so I had to find something for her to use. My bud that owns the tackle shop hooked me up with this setup for her. Wanted to know if you all think it will bring em in for her. My luck she will smoke me tonight :lol: Its a zebco 808 with baitclicker and a ol wiskers 8' rod with glow tip.

    oughta work just fine, Scott. i prefer the zebco rsc series for closed spinners...rsc3 for the wife and rsc5 for me.

    the 808 is a proven reel...let us know how it does:smile2:

    That is a great combo. My dad has used his 808's for many, many, many years. Good choice!

    my wife has 2 rigs an usually outfishes me w/my 5 rigs. I actually own over 20, but only use 5 at a time, an she uses her 2 and will either catch more or bigger ones than me, lol. AND I LOVE IT, WATCHIN HER LIGHT UP WHEN SHE GETS A FISH ON IS AS MUCH FUN AS WHEN I GET ONE ON.

    Crab you did good getting your wife that nice rig. If my wife would go fishing with me I'd get her whatever she wanted and pray she outfished me.
