I am planning to fish this Winter on Erie for Walleyes. I have a lot of Ul rods and reels for perch fishing on Ice but this is my first time going for walleye. I just bought 2 Fenwick Aetos 28" Medium action and would like some help putting a reel on them. Would the small UL reels be to small for these Rods? What reel would you Guys put on these rods? Thanks.

I'd throw a little bigger reel on it. Ya figure bigger line takes away capacity, bigger fish take more line. So bigger reel gives you more capacity and more power.
Look at me I can walk on water

I fish a Fenwick AETOS rod and put a Shimano SEDONA 500 on it.  I am very happy with the combo for walleye and perch here on Oneida.

I've got a bunch of different reels on my walleye setups (kind of a gear whore).  Pflueger president 9520's, patriarch 9525, shimano symetre 750, and stradic ci4 1000.  All of them have treated me well, but my favourite would be a toss up between the patriarch and the ci4.  Although they're both a touch of overkill for most walleye I've caught through the ice.  My aetos wears my patriarch most of the time.

I have the same rod with a pflueger president micro on it.  love it!  Worked just fine for those erie eyes last year.  I don't like the added weight of the bigger reel.
