    So the other day I broke my fishing pole. I took the top section and am turning that into a tip for a wooden ice fishing jig pole. Anyone got any ideas that they have used the lower portion of a spinning rod for?

      YA I HAVE A FEW,

      1. spare reel as an extra. OR if u bowfish save 85 bucks by attaching a bolt to the reel and then screw it into you bows limb.

      2. if the tip or upper part of your rod broke you CAN still use the rod, most rods disconnect into to parts on the rod by pulling them apart.

          You can take up fencing in your free time.

            Well the fencing bit has been done before it only results in many welts on my part. I plan on saving the reel as it still has a lot of life left in it. The bottom part of the rod is still good if I could only buy a top section to go with it, but they typically don't sell them that way, so I may as well buy a new rod, probably going with an ugly stick this time around. I'd like to find a use for the rod rather than toss it.

              put an old reel on it, and some heavy duty line. Tie a scent drag on it. You will be able to cast it out or have it off to the side of you easier as you walk next to a deer trail. Or cut a small hole in the bottom a turkey decoy, run some heavy duty line from the decoy to the lower section of the rod with reel attached, then tug the line, you now have a decoy that has some motion added to it.

                I actually combined two poles. the bottom half, a blue southbend, the top is an old eagle claw. People make fun of it because it looks ridiculous, however, they weren't laughing when I caught eleven black drum from 20-26 inches with it yesterday and outfished them. Used a hose clamp to fuse them.

                  Yoda, it will not work well for large fish but for fish the size of Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, or Spotted Seatrout, you can add a roller tip to the rod and make a trolling rod out of it. I have an old fiberglass two piece spinning rod that I used the lower section and added all roller guides along with an old Penn 309 series reel with the level wind removed. I have used it since 1974 to troll for Spanish Mackerel and it is still catches fish.
