Last spring I lost a Cabela's LST 9 ft 6 weight rod along with a Cabelas's RLS reel and a Rio floating line overboard. I was fishing about 150 yards from the launch area near the road. I had laid my rod/reel down since I had no strikes using a chironomid/strike indicator. Believe it or not a fish struck and that was the last I saw of my rod and reel. I trolled for several hours around the location but gave up thinking I would catch the floating line.
I did post a notice on the forum back then. Would appreciate a reply even if this is not the rig you found. Thanks drzeaus42
